Garden birds

There's a good assemblage of birds in my garden, some of them with families. Amongst the residents are Great Tits, Dunnocks, Sparrows, Robins, Blackbirds a Wren, and of course, the ubiquitous Jackdaws. On a couple of  occasions I have seen a Blue Tit and also a Bull Finch, which might be residing on the trees nearby. Last Tuesday a flock of about 15 Long-tailed tits stop by for a quick visit as I was refilling the feeders.

Juvenile Dunnock (Prunella modularis).
I have seen the parents several times, but this is the first time that I saw their chick.
