The Willie Wagtails have chicks again.  After their success a couple of months ago, the Willie Wagtails decided they could fit in another brood this season and we now have another pair of chicks flitting round the garden.

And very soon, this.

Given their habit of sitting on the wall waiting for a feed, I’d have thought that by now they would have become lunch for either a cat, or ‘our’ lizard.  He lives between this wall and next door’s garage.  He often sits on the wall and a newly fledged chick would have made a tasty snack.  I think the chicks a past the danger period now as they are good flyers and quite quick off the mark.

After all that work I think the parents deserve a rest until next spring.
