Fledgling blackbird. Not a brilliant shot as the birds were in our drive under the garden table and the light was not perfect. Nevertheless, I was pleased to capture this lovely new arrival.
Maybe others could add their first sightings? I for one would love to see them.
That's a good reminder, this is something we do every year so we can all share in everyone else's babies.
Well done on being the first this year, and it is a lovely photo.!
Like Doggie said I will put some up as soon as they fledge around here, currently a race between a starling in our eaves and a bluetit in the neighbours nest box
Dig out the ear plugs! LOL
Thanks for your comments everyone. Can't wait to see some more added.
Got some better photos of the fledgling blackbirds this morning - there were two around. Here they are.
Birdwoman Those two pictures are fabulous.
No pictures i'm afraid but here at the Lodge we have just had a mallard with 13 ducklings leave our pond, a moorhen is still tending to a single chick on the pond, plus a fledged robin was popping around the lawn! They have been very busy here this spring!
Thank you very much Tiger.
How wonderful to see. Our garden is thriving with activity and can't wait to see some more young arrivals.
Two young collared doves arrived in our garden today.
Lovely pictures of your fledglings. No sign of anything in my garden yet although I'm pretty sure a Blackbird is nesting deep in a hedge so I'm hopeful it won't be too long.
Those are beautiful pics Birdwoman.
Here are a couple of pics of a fledgling blackbird in my apple tree today. They were taken through (mucky) double glazed window so not brilliant
Here is a collared dove youngster being fed crop milk...
haven't got any pics of baby blackbirds yet- but first saw fledglings about two weeks ago-look bigger than their parents! must have been those waxworms i'd been feeding them.
to all above, really lovely pictures
