Nuthatches feeding youngster

By HobbitDave
Hope this isn't too enthusiastic - the nuthatches have just hatched and are being fed in my neighbour's nest box.

Best to all,

Your vigilance has certainly paid off Dave. Must be brilliant to see the little ones getting fed. You have waited so long for this. Nice set of shots with my favourite, not being one of the little ones, but V8. Moira

Thanks everyone for your very kind comments on these pics. Yes, these little fellers have spent a good month 'setting up home; and I've never seen a Nuthatches nest before where the young have properly hatched. Am hoping to get a couple more of them before they fly, but the nestbox is in a shaded place and in needs sun around 7.30pm for the best lighting. Fingers crossed, as it is very cloudy tonight and not possible with an ole' 600mm manual focus lens, even at ISO 1600 unless the sun is on the nest box
Watch this space though Wink
