"To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour."

Blue Tit Family Update

Six young blue tits are still thriving and growing well. Feathers are starting to appear on their wings and heads and parents are busy feeding with female only doing an occasional spell of brooding. Had to chase off great spotted woodpecker again today who was having another attempt at breaking through the metal plate.

Sounds as though you have a wonderful wildlife garden... Hopefully the metal plate will do its job and Woodie won't be successful.

Thanks Tricia. As far as I am aware there have been no further visits from Woodie although it will be a nerve wracking few weeks until they fledge.
