So they made it through the night. With all that rain and wind I did wonder whether the two little chicks would be ok, but they were still waving their little beaks around begging for food at 7am this morning…. except now there were three!
The picture above shows Mum feeding the youngsters this morning
The pair have been flying backwards and forwards all day catching flies of differing sizes and types for the kids. It’s hard to know what they all are but I’m expecting hoverflies, wasps and mozzies to be on the menu (as that’s what we seem to have a glut of).
The following two minute epic shows just a selection of the two’ings and fro’ings today. By dodging the rain showers the pair have been doing a sterling job of supplying enough food for their hungry trio.
It’s looking like a rainy week, so lets hope Corfe Mullen gets off lightly!
