Topic: Baby Blues.
I was awakened this morning at 6/30 by a some harsh sounding rogues.
My goodness the racket was something else. "Magpies and there young.. Theres so many of them around
i normally enjoy watching them and there cheeky behaviour. I can only imagine there own chicks were being threatened by some cats !
i have some blue tits nesting in my garden.
There babies are due to fly in the next few days. I've been listening to the babies cheep when the parents are approaching with food. Its so brilliant to hear and watch the parents work so hard for there babies.
Now my concern is ! Mr and Mrs Magpie have killer instincts. While magpies are beautiful to look at, they will kill these blue tit chicks. Oh, i know leave nature alone, but i would like to give these wee babies a chance to fly.
Any bird lovers on here with advice ?
These are just a few photos taken last week of the bird box.. There old wooden wine boxes, recycled into bird boxes. They have worked better then any fancy bird boxes i've purchased over the years.
blue tits feeding, I love the way they all spring up with the beaks open as if about to sing
