Photography: Second Clutch of Goldfinches

by Tony Hicks

This second nest was started during the first week of June. 

The first egg was laid n the 8th June - all laid early in the morning.

If all goes well, the first should hatch about 25th-29th June; it takes about 13 - 15 days.

The young will be in the nest for 14 - 17 days, so they should fly about 14th - 17th  July.

It would also appear they recycle their old nests. Good birds.
