Great tits from fledging to fledglings – Part 1

The fledgling part will follow on from this post, so for the time being let’s concentrate on the fledging.  Here are a few shots of great tit chicks in a bird box in my garden minutes before it’s time to leave and explore the big bad world.  The process of the adults tempting the chicks out to the initial fight for survival is surprisingly dramatic.
