The Young of 2018

  • That's a beauty Alan,  I've not seen the same numbers of Whitethroat and other warblers this year, maybe due to that cold snap in March.

    I did see our first Coal Tit juvenile this afternoon and I'll insert a pic once they are off the camera.

  • Lucky you, Alan. I've barely had a glimpse of a Whitethroat this year let alone a juvenile.

  • Here's the first sign of a juvenile Coal Tit from this afternoon

  • Juvenile Goosander

  • My juvenile BT's are independent too. One of the adults still comes to the kitchen to feed from the wax worm dish.

  • I never seen the adults but I'm almost sure it's a young Reed Bunting.

  • A juvenile goldfinch, enjoying the delights of the fountain in our pond...

    Apologies for the poor quality of the pics, the garden cam has now been repositioned, so hopefully, I'll get some clearer shots.

  • Thanks, Limpy, What little sweeties they are!

  • Just before we went away on holiday we had a treat of a young Hoopoe coming & sitting on our hangar roof, mum (or dad) flew around a few times & came back with a little tit-bit, but the youngster stayed put for a couple of hours. It was quite wet too from the water laying in the roof channel,

    here comes food

    Not enough looking at it's expression now

  • Great shots of the young Hoopoe Hazel

    Some of these are in a post elsewhere on the forum, but as this is dedicated to the young....
