Mother thrush and her wee babies – Tim Durrant

Sometime between Christmas and New Year a tree blew down in our front garden exposing a mother thrush incubating her eggs. I decided to take some careful zoom photos of her over several days until the eggs hatched. Here are the results. I will take some more as they get a bit older.

  1. Unfortunately they did not make it. I think there was not enough shelter when the branch fell off the tree and exposed them to a lot of sun. Maybe that or the ground was just too hard to get any worms. Bugger.
