All day our bluetit family have been trying to entice the chicks out of the box. Sadly we must have missed the big exodus so have not a clue how many we're in the brood. Somewhat oddly this adult has kept coming back and visiting the box with food in its beak. Is there a chick still in there? I will have to wait a couple of days before I I can check the box and clean it out.
Today's extra photo is of MaggieD and Chloe along the canal this afternoon. In the background and out of sight is a group of lads fishing in the canal. One of them had been enjoying the fresh air and a bottle of "Vino Collapso" and was, as they say, "Aff his face!" He will surely regret his over indulgence in the morning!
