Robins have Fledged

Lots of revision this past week has once again crippled me from getting out much and improving my yearlist, however I can report that the Robins that were nesting next to my house have now fledged. We saw one bird leave the nest late on Monday evening and since then the parents have been busy feeding the young which are hidden away amongst the brambles behind my garden. Unfortunately this means I haven;t actually had good views of them and thus far do not know how many there are, 2 I have seen but that is the minimum as I suspect there could be more. I will try get some pictures in the next few days if the young venture into the garden, although the increasingly common visits by the Sparrowhawks may cause them some concern when coming out of their shelter.
