I thought I’d be skipping off to the plot first thing this morning but we have torrential rain as I write this so it’s a no go certainly for the first part of the day. Instead a bit of writing and I thought I’d share this picture taken last week of a very brave blue tit attempting it’s first flight.
We’ve rarely seen them during visits to the plot getting close to the nest only to replenish their food and water for fear of scaring them away so it was quite a surprise that they would fledge whist we were there. Although this photograph has been cropped it was taken about two metres away.
Perhaps once it’s time to go there’s no holding back.
