Mother & Child

I have seen a lot of baby birds like this young sparrow begging to be fed over the last week so I guess these mums have had two batches of babies this summer. They must be exhausted!

I'm always amazed to see how big some of the chicks are and are still being fed by their parents.

It's quite a chore keeping them fed.
