After the rain....... Absolutely amazing watching the House Martins this evening they nest under the eaves here every year and as colonial nesters  with groups of four to five nests that can often have up to three broods, the young from the first brood often helping to feed the second . Couldn’t even begin to count how many were swooping over the canal for all the insects it was captivating .....nature is just so incredible.  Check out their little tails hanging over the rooftop 🙌✨💕
Pair of Mute Swans taking turns to incubate their eggs in the nest ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Swans are monogamous and usually attempt to mate for life. The male and female birds, the cob and pen, build their nest by making a large mound of reeds, rushes, grasses and sticks, at the water's edge. The nest is built by the pen, while the cob supplies the materials and protects the territory. Unlike most other waterfowl, the male will also take turns helping to incubate the eggs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #swans #whiteswans #nestingbirds #birds #birdsegg #birdseggs #beautifulbirds #wildbirds #waterbird #waterbirds #birds_nature #nature_worldwide_birds #birdwatcher #birdlovers #birds_brilliance #birds_perfection #swanphotography #birdphotos #birdshots #birds_captures #birdsofinstagram #birds_of_instagram #birdsofinsta #instabird #birdstagram #ig_birds #yourbestbirds #your_best_birds #featheredfriends #feathered_perfection
Mute Swan sitting on a clutch of eggs in the nest ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Swans lay on average six eggs per clutch, but can lay as many as twelve. Only one egg can be produced at a time, with an egg being laid every 12-24 hours by the female. When the clutch is complete, all the eggs will be incubated (sat on) together, with the hatchlings usually emerging 35-42 days later. That allows for the eggs to all hatch at the same time. When the eggs are first laid they have a bluish-grey hue, but later turn more of an olive colour. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The pair of swans I photographed had six eggs in their nest. Swipe left to see the full clutch. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #muteswan #muteswans #swan #swans #swanegg #swaneggs #swannest #swansnest #swansnesting #nestingswan #nestingswans #nestingbirds #birdsnesting #birdsnest #nesting #nest #nests #motherswan #swansoninstagram #instaswan #swanwatch #bird #birds #birding #birdphotography #waterbirds #wildlife #britishwildlife #nativewildlife #rspb_love_nature
Yellow-legged Gull nesting on the ground ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I found this Yellow-legged Gull nesting on Sveta Katarina (St. Catherine's Island), just off the coast of Rovinj in Croatia. Yellow-legged Gulls mainly breed in large colonies between the rocks on coastal cliffs and on rocky islands in the Mediterranean and Adriatic Seas and the Atlantic Ocean. They nest on the ground, generally in the grass or on sand or pebbles. The nest is a cup-shaped scrape, lined with grass and twigs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #yellowleggedgull #yellowlegged #gull #gulls #gullsofinstagram #seagull #seagulls #seagullsofinstagram #larusmichahellis #seabird #seabirds #nest #nests #nesting #birdsnest #birdsnesting #nestingbirds #bird #birds #birding #birdphotography #birdstagram #birdsofig #birdsofinstagram #nature #naturepic #naturephotos #svetakatarina #rovinj #croatia
Pair of Yellow-legged Gull chicks, in front of their cliff-top nest ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Gull chicks are relatively mature and mobile from the moment they hatch and will fledge about 42-48 days after hatching. When gull chicks get hungry they will peck at the bright red gonydeal spot on their parent's bill, which will stimulate the parent to regurgitate food for them. Yellow-legged Gulls feed primarily on fish and crustaceans, they will also eat other birds’ eggs, molluscs, large insects and small mammals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #yellowleggedgull #yellowlegged #gull #gulls #gullsofinstagram #seagull #seagulls #seagullsofinstagram #larusmichahellis #fledgling #babybirds #seabird #seabirds #nest #nests #nesting #babybirdsnest #birdsnest #birdsnesting #nestingbirds #bird #birds #birding #birdphotography #birdstagram #birdsofig #birdsofinstagram #svetakatarina #rovinj #croatia
When you're sat watching birds on the lake then look up and see this fella up a tree in the distance.

Southern Carmine Beeeaters Migrating annually from central Africa, these colourful birds arrive in South Luangwa National Park by September. They nest in holes dug into the banks of the Luangwa river and their colonies are quite a spectacle. I was pleasantly surprised to find them in August itself. #carminebeeeater #beautifulbirds #nestingbirds #southluangwa #zambia #safari #birdsofafrica #africanbirds #africa
