Bursting blooms and baby birds

These baby blackbirds were in the nest in the ivy wall of Marchmont Community Garden, but have fledged in the past 48 hours. A second pair of blackbirds is now nesting and frantically feeding their young further along the same ivy wall and a pair of great tits are in the bird box on the maple behind the garden.

Meanwhile in Tavistock Square there is a wonderful show of blue camassia, a ‘prairie plant’ that seems to like garden squares as well.

    Thanks for wonderful photo of the birds, I have enjoyed listening to the dawn chorus this Spring and the blossom too has been special.
