have not caught many on camera but this one was easy..fledgling of Gt tit...left too early so got brill pic..parents looked after him though & he flew next day...about 6 babies in nest box..going back to childhood I look to see if any eggs left to keep..there was one..remember as a kid I loved the medium size egg of speckled blue.. think it was blackbirds...
