Christmas Day has dawned, cloudy, grey, and some light rain.
Santa has been here overnight, and the tree is decorated, with lights flashing, tinsel and all else, it is truly complete with an angel on the top… and gifts wrapped up have been delivered. I think Santa Sacks are at the doorways too.
The Best Present of All
Mrs Blackbird in the grapevine, with her babies
One little baby ready for dinner.
Mrs Thrush had 3 babies on 22nd December, they now have a little downy fluff covering their tiny bodies. She is a wonderful Mum, and fluffs her wings out so wide to cover them.
Mrs Blackbird has had one baby a day for 3 days, too tiny to photograph yet.She is so good too, sitting carefully, and her wings spread wide, her babies are so tiny.
Not a Dad to be seen anywhere, the Mums are doing all the trips out of their nest to collect tiny insects and maybe worms.Literally a flying visit, done so quickly, so the littlies do not get too cold.
This is nature’s delight for Christmas at our place, truly a miracle.
