Aren't they wonderful?
It's been a wonderful morning for birds. Although we live on the edge of a big city there are still wonders if you know where to look. Upwards is a good start, or here if you are not in Nottingham.
Our University is home to a family of peregrines, this morning we stood in the street and watched the parents bringing food to the ledge. Some people thought we were mad and couldn't work out what we were looking at; another family also stood entranced, they knew how to look too!
Sometimes down is a good place as well. I have been soundly told off by the great tits in the garden.
When I looked at my feet I saw their first fledgling in the wood pile.
I did not get a photo of my fledgling sad to say, I was too busy carrying the cat inside; I want the birds to have a fighting chance.
