Blue Tits Feeding their Chicks

Here are further shots of blue tits still working tirelessly to provide for their chicks.  The chicks are probably only a couple of days from fledging.  Again, all shots taken with a wireless remote shutter release so not to disturb!

Blue Tits Providing

Here are a few shots of blue tits busily going back and forward in order to feed their clearly demanding chicks.  Although unsure as to how many chicks are in the nest, a single chick can eat up to 100 caterpillars a day, now that’s hard work for you.  All shots taken with a wireless remote shutter release so not to disturb!

ACTIVITY?

Maybe, the patter of tiny little blue tit feet to come?

Woodpecker vs Blue Tit

This little blue tit never stood a chance at the nut feeder when faced with a much larger great spotted woodpecker.  However, on the plus side the blue tit did make for a nice shape and background to this shot.

College Lake – Wildlife

College lake is a former chalk quarry in Tring, Buckinghamshire, which the Wildlife Trust has fairly recently made a conservation area.  Entrance is free although you are requested to make a recommended £3 donation to use the car park which is not obligatory.  A two to three mile walk arount its perimeter makes for a great leisurely stroll and gives the opportunity to stop at one of its many hides to observe the wildlife.  So, despite disappointing skies and less than ideal photography conditions (and a hangover), this is how I spent my bank holiday Sunday afternoon.  Link:  http://www.bbowt.org.uk/college-lake-environmental-education-centre
