Baby Birds

I have been stalking a little family for the past 10 days or so. As I was searching for hen's eggs one day, I discovered a nest with eggs in it, in one of my hazelnut trees. I'm pretty sure that it is a starling nest, so got out the camera for some photos. After I took the first snap, it was like the light had gone on and woken them up! Here they are, anticipating food:
The nest is very securely made in the fork of the branches, and withstood the gale at the weekend.

Yes, they are fine - the nest is very well made and they are filling it up :)
