Having seen the adult birds ferreting around on the lawn to find things to feed their young it is nice to see one of the juveniles visiting us.
I hope it will survive the semi-feral cats that lurk around. At the moment in the dry spell there are not so many insects but let's hope that it can get enough to survive. As I walked up to the Smart/Idiot this morning it stayed on the side lawn only a matter of 14-15 feet away from me. The same thing happened when I looked out of the franch window with the camera, it looked and then carried on searching.
It would be nice to see a pair nesting in the cotoneaster next year, but I don't think there will be much chance.
