I joined other birdwatchers this morning at Attenborough Nature Reserve to check on the great crested grebe family that I first became aware of on Saturday.
A second chick has hatched and both are clearly being well looked after. I expect that if and when the third egg hatches they will move to a less exposed position.
Walking back to the car park along the main path and studying the verges on both sides I caught sight of a couple of baby whitethroat on some bare branches (first image). Over the next few minutes I saw three of these little beauties and managed to get some delightful portraits. Particularly pleasing is the way a triangle of branches frames the birds in the first and last images. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. 🙂
