Female Red Crossbill 1 of 2

Also on my wanderings this week I finally heard the sounds of a Crossbill. To my amazement I spotted the female. She was just attending a baby which unfortunately had fallen out of the nest. After she feed the baby I went and took a look. The infant was quite capable of flying, but chose to hide in the grass instead. I did go back the next day to make sure the infant was ok....and like I had thought it had flown away.
