Many have realised the the one reliable in their lives at the moment is nature. Throughout the lockdown the wildlife that surrounds us has been getting on with the job of raising young.
The results of their hard work can be seen on many garden bird feeders, and yesterday these young blue tits decided to try and empty the peanut feeder.
They didn't succeed but they, together with older members of their family, have been very successful and emptying the seed feeder. It now needs filling twice a day!
It will be interesting to see if the lockdown coupled with an extended spell of good weather results in a more successful breading season.
