Sparrowhawk, a predator. Fortunately a rare visitor to the garden.
Several parakeets on the feeders, and waiting their turn on the tree.
We have a flock of maybe 30 parakeets living locally.
24th May 2020, lots of Starling fledglings on the lawn, learning to eat food. Quite dangenerous for them.
Starling fledglings drinking from the pond, they are brown, adults are darker with white dots.
Starlings on the bread feeder. In May they can eat two loaves of bread a day.
Unfortunately the fledglings often drop their bread so the pigeons eat it instead.
Bathing in the pong again. Maybe also eating tadpoles.
Two starling fledglings.
