Family parties

My repeated walks between home and the garage at Prestwick have been made pleasant by the number of noisy family groups in the hedgerows. Yesterday it was mainly Great Tits Whitethroat and Blue Tit with between three and five families of each but today nearing Prestwck was noisy group of three young Willow Tits being fed by an adult

I think the nest was in a dead tree near the Forster residence where I heard a bird singing last month and had seen a number of times since.

The adult had its work cut out with the endless demands of the young but they appeared to be getting inquisitive and seeking out their own food by climbing stalk and branch.

This one was a bit of a star as it repeatedly ran back and forth after Mum or was it Dad as I assume the other adult bird would be nearby with some more young. A good result for the Carr.
