Walk in the woods – never know what you might find

One of the reasons I enjoy field archery as a hobby is the opportunity to be out and about. We have the opportunity to see natural sights that are often hidden or missed.

Saturday whilst walking from one target to another and dodging the heavy “summer” showers,  I spotted a blue tit flying to a hollow in a tree.

Watching I realised it was a nest hole filled with young chicks. With care I took this quick picture and then watched from a distance to make sure I hadn’t scared the parents away. Here’s hoping they don’t get drowned in the wet weather we are having or found by a hungry squirrel.

Will keep an eye out for it next week. Thanks for reading
