It's hard to believe that that little ball of fluff is going to grow up into such a stunning brightly coloured bird. Lovely captures, Ed. Carol

This is a great set Ed and all the more enjoyable as I saw them myself, thanks for a great day yesterday, after I dropped you off I went back to the side of the road where we saw the blue tit and managed to get five different birds, I stayed there for two hours. - gary

this duckling has a very short beak, then I read your intro and realise its a mandarin I would not have guessed, will get his fab colours as he grows older then
