Today is the most perfect of spring days, warm with a slight breeze. The air is full of the scent of spring flowers. In the orchard a pair of robins are building a nest, not sure if it is a second nest for the ones in the garden or a different pair. The young blackbirds have fledged. I was hoping to get another photo of them in the nest before they left, but too late.This morning as I stood filling the goose' pond one of the fledglings was sitting in the plum tree next to me getting rather impatient that he was being kept waiting for his breakfast. It is still early in the year so hopefully the parent birds will have another brood.
