Fledgling birds in Cuckfield, West Sussex UK

The early morning is a good time to look out of the window for birds and this morning a Nuthatch, Dunnock and Greenfinch were hopping about.
This juvenile Greenfinch was crying for attention from its parents.
By contrast a juvenile Goldfinch was happily feeding on Cornflower seeds from a flower bed.

A fledgling crow has been hopping around the garden whilst its parents are making loud raucous cries from above and flying around it at a distance -- in some concern no doubt.  The resident fox may not need to go far for its dinner tonight.

Earlier in the week, Young Bluetits were in the garden trees.

There was a bang against a window and sadly the next day the cause was evident.
A young nuthatch presumably didn't survive the impact.  Any more like this and I may put experimental masking tape strips on the windows as a warning.
