Garden Drama...

We have had a family of bluetits nesting in one of our boxes in the garden this spring.  The baby birds finally fledged last week but on the day we had heavy rain and a thunderstorm in the afternoon. I could hear them cheeping at various points in the garden and had to keep the dog inside or on a lead to make sure she did not inadvertantly kill any of them.  By the evening the baby birds were waterlogged and still fluttering about in the flower beds.  We managed to get a few photos quickly without stressing them out too much.

Happily, the following day they were still alive (despite neighbourhood cats and marauding magpies) and were drying out.  By lunchtime they had gone - another little success story!
