Fledgling Wrens for #30DaysWild

Dalry Cemetery, one of the cemeteries we visit on our #DailyExercise is at the moment full of fledgling birds! We haven't seen the young sparrowhawks yet (though I think we'll hear them before we see them, they are very noisy around fledging time). Yesterday we were almost surrounded by fledging birds, great tits on one side and wrens on the other. Crafty Green Boyfriend was able to get these amazing photos of some of the wrens




There were several more young wrens fluttering around in the undergrowth!

Dalry Cemetery now has a Friends group, which has set up a website and a Facebook group

Great photos! I spent an afternoon last week with a biology professor checking out bird rookeries on our island--his area or interest are heron and we have a lot (I never knew there were so many varieties of these birds).

I love to se that row of wrens. We have them but they are rarely seen. And I have never seen a young one. Thanks for sharing.

Karen - they're incredibly cute, you're right!

Sage - that sounds interesting, Edinburgh has it's own heron rookery, which is amazing to watch, but we can't get there in lockdown

Spirit of Simplicity - i love birdsong too, so beautiful

Podo, Lowcarb, Rabbits' Guy, Birgitta - thanks

Nature Footstep - we've seen more young birds in this cemetery than almost anywhere!

Hi Monika - it was amazing to watch them, they really are cutie pies as you say!

Rambling Woods - I hope they have good lives too, they're certainly in a good habitat
