Feed me, feed me, feed me!

Feed me, feed me, feed me! they are saying. These are gorgeous song thrush chicks and there are five of them squeezed into the neat, mud-lined nest.The photo below was a quick inspection only 4 days before - what a difference and it's amazing how fast they grow! We ringed them with the correct BTO ring and carefully tucked them all back into their nest. Another few days and they will leave the nest, able to fly.

4 days previously!

The nest is tucked under a bridge in the top of some trailing ivy.
