More young birds

The Chelsea flower show has started this week and there is much discussion about how the exhibitors are struggling with the recent hot weather. Do they refer to our superb April weather or the pretty average May weather which has been dry and windy so far. Unless something spectacular happens in the remaining few days of May, which isn't forecast, it will turn out to be virtually spot on average temperature wise.

Next week Springwatch returns to BBC. If they were filming here they would have missed most of the nesting birds. Young blackbirds and sparrows have been about for a week or so. I've managed to take a couple of pictures of a young robin and yesterday I photographed this youngster. We couldn't decide between greenfinch or goldfinch until it flew into the magnolia tree and received some food from a parent greenfinch.
