My Song Thrush..................................................................... is also feeding

I have shared this little Song Thrush before... it's nesting in my garden.
I have purchased some new fence panels and posts... the job is now on hold as the Song Thrush is nesting in overgrown bush which has brought the job to a standstill.

 A couple of weeks ago it was nesting material the female thrush was carrying to build her nest.

Now it's worms to feed the youngsters.

It's a busy,busy, time for the Song Thrush family in my garden.

I am getting lots of sightings like these at the moment... isn't nature wonderful.

Nice one Andrew, I'm sure that fat worms are to her/him for feeding to chicks.

Song Thrush is certainly looking after the chicks

Phil said...

There's some big beakfuls there Andrew. Looks like you wont have to wait too long before you repair the fence, unless of course they use the nest again for a second brood!

Stewart M said...

Nice set of shots - I like the way you can see the "arrow head" spots on the bird’s chest.
