A fledgling Blackie has appeared this afternoon. One of the parents is looking after it but it looks like any proper flight looks is out of the question. I hope the night time moggies don't find it. :(

Have a pair of blackies feeding nestlings still. Getting rather desperate and the suet pellets seem to be a godsend.

Point it towards the countryside as there are tons of ripe Blackberries awaiting it's attention at present. :nod:
