An amazing image, one which many would have loved to have captured, and one which I am sure will win many deserved accolades.

Brilliant in every way, did you find them or were you alerted to the nest?.....Just out of interest more than anything else, but even more kudos if you found the nest yourself!

This is so precious, perfect title, and the birds framed by the brickwork, colours blending, big eyes sparkling, eagerness to take flight, and a beautiful wing span too.
