This little soul flew the nest today, sadly he/she only has a partial undercarriage. The parent birds have been wonderful, following it around and trying to protect it, unfortunately the odds are stacked against it. At least cats cannot get into our garden. :wink:
Photographed through double glazing so not the sharpest.

Rob,

This poor little guy is at a disadvantage, but survival is possible. Let's keep our hopes up that he will adapt and thrive. :smile:

Rob,

looks like the baby has both wings if only one leg. It may well survive if it learns how to balance on just one leg.

Poor baby....

24 hours on and the parents are still working hard, constant alarm calls. I haven't seen 'Peggy' so far, hopefully she is still alive.
