Fledglings.


We woke up this morning to a lot of warning chirrups from the Robin parents. When we peeked out of the bedroom window, one of the babies was on the garage roof. I said: But surely he can't fl.....! and then he did. Even though his tail hasn't grown in yet.
They spent some time hopping around the back garden and have now settled on the other side of the house, in deep undergrowth with high bush cover. Clever.
The nest is empty.
It's bittersweet.

Lovely photo of them hunkered down in their nest. And a great tin!
