Dazed and Confused

This fledgling wren whizzed past us in a whirr of tiny wings and crash-landed on a branch just a few feet away, when we were walking at St.John's Chapel in Weardale, County Durham yesterday
I think it was still struggling to master the finer points of flight. Up in the branches above us, we could hear some very agitated parents........

  4. I HAD to come in for another peek at the baby..... also to show daughter. We've thought of a caption for the third photo.

  6. Hi David, Keith, Lesley, lotusleaf,John and Adrian ..... it's amazing, I've been trying unsuccessfully to photograph wrens for ages and then this one almost landed on the end of my lens. The only predictable thing about nature photography is that the best opportunities are always unpredictable....
