What a beautiful photo Suey! The tails are so light, they look like dandelion 'clocks'. Brilliant, thanks for sharing!

they love the sunflower seeds in the bird food,Bloomer. these are quite young,it took them a long time to work out how to get on to the bird table.

thanks Karensusan,you are right their tails are really light,they reminded me of a feather.i could not believe how light they were,i thinks its because they are so young.

Catching up Sue, what a great pic, you can't help loving them. I no longer have a bird table after I noticed two dunnocks a few years ago, at different times, become very fat and eat insatiably. They couldn't fly at the end either. On googling I found there was a disease, which dunnocks were more prone to than other birds, which eventually killed them and they caught from bird tables. I have hanging feeders now, but the seed gets spilt on the ground and I've noticed a very fat dunnock again which has difficulty flying. Maybe bring back the table as it doesn't seem to make much difference:-)

Poor Dunnocks.I did'nt know that.Perhaps you might as well bring your bird table back.Some birds throw a lot of seed around don't they.Theres more on the floor than there is left on the table after they have been feeding in my garden.Hope you work it out.:O))

Thanks Marybells,they are so adorable.One spent hours on the bird table yesterday.They are very brave they travel quite a distance from the large trees to the bird table.
