Great tits from fledging to fledglings – Part 2

Following on from part 1, here are a number of shots of two great tit fledglings.  Unfortunately, from what I observed, one of the fledglings flew straight into a garden bush from where he seemed reluctant to move, so it was not unexpected that he was found dead the following morning.  The other fledgling (pictured on the ground) appeared not too keen to fly and I do not know what came of him.  The remaining great tits fledged two day later and went straight to the trees.
