They've all got tails and not too much of a yellow gape, so may have been out of the nest for a few days.
They came back later in the day and got even closer - to within a few feet of where I was sitting. Managed to get a few shots but take into account - they're through glass and it was blowing a gale out there!
I've got some beautifully focused twigs and leaves and occasionally a not too bad a shot of the blue-tits. Unbelievably adorable little bundles of fluff and looking well fed, getting buffeted by the wind.
Very attentive parents - both birds are feeding all five of them, making constant trips between feeders and their brood. The youngsters do occasionally fly over to the feeders but don't quite know what to do and just wait to be fed.

They're so well fed that they're even dozing off on their perches. They were around for a good half-hour and I hope to see them back.
