Lower Tamar Lake

This morning at the Lake,

2 Mute Swan, 2 Great Crested Grebe, 1 Grey Heron, 20  Mallard, 2 Moorhen, 2 Coal Tit, 3 Blue Tit, 1 Nuthatch

1 adult WillowTit ( the one reported last week in heavy moult) feeding a recently fledged chick.

It was taking feed from the fat balls and feeding the R/F on a branch 10ft away, also taking the fat ball feed and flying up into the foliage, I imagine to feed another R/F chick, it then took sunflower seeds and ate them itself before carrying on feeding the R/F chicks.
