It is the season where youngsters have been raised and sent out into the world – but remain under a watchful eye.
The young rabbit thinks this is how it should feed
while mother looks on indulgently
The young robin goes exploring
while mother hopes for the best
The young blackbird is slightly puzzled
father is not impressed
The young sparrow thinks that if it sits in the feeder, someone will feed it
and the young blue tit
hope for the best.
Meanwhile getting in the grass proceeds apace
Some of our harvest today
