Well, it has been a busy few weeks! With this lovely weather, things have really kicked off in the garden. There has been lots of interest in all my cameras, from all sorts of directions and I am hoping to share them a little wider in the coming month. I now have eight cameras live streaming and it takes me a lot of time, not only to maintain them and keep them all looking good, but also to look through and upload daily footage from each.
My favourite at the moment, is my blackbird nest! The chicks are growing SO fast and I know we probably only have another week before these guys fledge into the garden so every moment is a joy! The last couple of days have seen amazing growth and now their eyes are open and their feathers coming in really fast.
They are now stretching their wings and looking out of the nest cup. It is so incredible how quickly they change once their feather start emerging!
The parents have been very busy feeding and I have been trying to see if I can get the male to feed out of my hand. He is much bolder than the female and has been getting closer and closer with the lure of mealworms! I have not had my 'real' camera out for a while, but this was too good an opportunity to miss. I managed to get some lovely shots of him, with his beak full!
