It was able to fly around where i kept it in a room and seemed quite happy to be having a flitter. Still eating and drinking rather well, a very good sign of recovery.
On the third day it was really flying around and its eye had cleared up of its injury. Was then that i decided that it would not be fair to keep it any longer. I duly opened up the window, and after a moment or two flew out. Was good to know that i could help this bird.

While i was pottering about in the garden, i heard this fluttering, and to my surprise there was a starling on the window feeder. Was able to get quite close and observe it feeding. Would eat some and then take a beakfull away.
While it was gone i dashed in to get the camera, to see if i could get a bit closer for a few shots.
As can see, i done rather well in getting a small sequence of shots of the starling. Set camera to program mode, so as not to fiddle about with settings.

this is the nest of a wren that i found in a railway cutting. A pouch like nest with a small opening. This particular one i suspect is still in the building stage.

No takers so far for the new feeder with the home brew in it. But i did notice a rook taking a keen interest while perched on the fence. Felt pretty sure it would try and get to it, but alas traffic in the street frightened it off.
Went for my usuall walk today, and decided to take a detour to the creek to see what was there wildlife wise. None to speak of, but talking with a lady was informed that two little egrets were there early in the morning. Also from another source was told that otters have been seen there. How reliable that information is i could not say.
My two pidgeons returned in the evening for a last feed. Not seen the hedgehog since i photographed it.

This morning after getting back home from the dog walk, i seen my usuall blackbird which was the female. Have not seen the male for several days now, hope he is ok. The two magpies were about as well. They just love those suet pellets.
Also a first for me this morning, a woodpigeon came for some food. I see them on the rooftops but never actually in my garden. Came twice for a feed, am very pleased about that. Goes to show it may be little but am making a difference.
