In my neighbour’s plum this afternoon.


I had heard and seen one fly in there and was watching to see if it was starting to feed itself, when it appeared to be fed in there by a RWB.  However, it was more likely an interaction as when it appeared in view it was soon followed by a second, almost identical very golden one (with very little black on the head yet so probably both females).  For 10-15 seconds they sat within 2 meters of each other before the second chased the first away.  Only the first was still begging quite softly as it has been in and around my garden since 22 January.


The probably independent one was the 99th fledgling that I’m aware of this season.  Shortly after Shorty reported the 100th to me, so we have reached a century for the first time.
