Our garden has burst into new life, not only with spring blooms and greener grass, with baby birds. I am in heaven and just want to spend every second of the daylight outside with my camera. I could spend hours just watching them all. I crept under the Rhododendron bush yesterday and just sat there watching them all, I just about jumped out of my skin when the phone rang, I was lost in the world of birds under the Rhododendron bush and I forgot I had it in my pocket.
This little baby appeared and he is delightful. I am about to get quite close to him. They are more photogenic than the parents as they do not have their camouflage yet.
Dunnocks (which used to be called Hedge Sparrows) nest in the garden hedge and usually feed at ground level – picking up the seed that the other birds have thrown of the seed trays.
