Great excitement this morning as hubby shouted up to me whilst I was having a leisurely bath. And with just a bath towel wrapped around me, I dashed out into the garden with my camera to capture the first glimpse of our tiny babies. They have chosen the windiest day to try to learn to fly and sadly one of them was lying lifeless under the nest box - my lettucey crash pad didn't save him. We have seen 2 in the garden, and there are still lots of cheep cheeps coming from the box.Mummy was busy trying to feed the 2 that had flown, and she kept darting in and out of the box too.
We went out all day to leave them to it, but when I got back, I found one of them in the pond and it couldn't get out. I fished him out carefully using a large plant pot so I didn't have to touch him. For the last hour or so, he's not moved. I hope he is going to be OK.
Kids are such a worry.
