fledglings and the rain


Post by bizzy » June 11th, 2019, 9:12 pm

at a time when many young birds are leaving the nest for the first time, this wet spell has come at a bad time for them,
we've had several species in the garden with fledglings along, Blackbirds, house sparrows and some hedge sparrows too, all looking decidedly wet and bedraggled indeed,
not much we can do about it though, other than keep a plentiful supply of food our for them, and hope they all make it to adulthood ok.
not good for the Swallows and Swifts either this prolonged rain we are getting :(
