Blue Tit in the garden this week. We still have the family of about 3 of them around at the moment.

The Blue Tits are growing up!

Some photos from the garden over the last couple of days. The Blue Tit chicks are growing up fast and are reasonably tame. Most of the photos were taken from the dining room through the window, but the one of the Blue Tit on the feeder was taken with me sitting in the garden about 6 feet away from the feeder!

Very quiet in the garden at the moment. Too hot during the day for the birds and they seem to have stopped visiting in large amounts since I ran out of food for them for a couple of days. 🙂
