Who says there is no such thing as a free meal.
I noticed a blue tit sat atop the fat balls in this feeder. It just sat there, and occasionally had a little nibble and then had a rest. They say that if a bird is very lethargic around a bird feeder, it is probably ill. So I decided to investigate and guess what I found. It was a young blue tit. Don't think if it was one of Orville's siblings, because this one could fly quite well. Later in the day it came back and did the same again, until the sun shone directly on the feeder, which must have made it uncomfortable.
You can't blame the young blue tit though; a seat at a table, no-one to disturb you, and plenty of food. What more could you ask for ?
And Orville ? Well he's made his way to the secluded area under the apple tree, and his parents are still feeding him. He's getting louder, so he must be growing, and his siblings are still in the hedges and shrubs around the garden.
