Youngsters

Despite the appalling weather of the past few days, the birds don't seem to have suffered too badly.  Indeed the fat-balls in our feeder are still being eaten at a rapid rate and yesterday, there was a family of House Sparrows on them for most of the day.  The young Sparrows are quite capable of feeding themselves now, but they still like mum and dad to feed them when they can get it.  Through the glass, amid the gloom and in the wet, it was not easy to get a good picture, but this one seems to give the idea.
Two little darlings, sitting among the Hawthorn flowers, were being fed by their poor, put-upon mother.  Bless their little hearts!
