I am very lucky to have a Yellow-bellied Sunbird (Cinnyris jugularis) nest in my garden.

Here are Dad (1st pic) and Mum feeding the two chicks.

It might be an idea to put the location in your keywords.

I went on my annual trip to the Isle of May and Bass Rock nature reserves. The seabirds are a bit behind with egg laying so they are all frantically mating. I saw Arctic terns, Herring Gulls, Guillemots all at it.  Just beginning to upload some of the photos.

Similar to Sally above, I too was witness to the frantic mating and nest building activities on a recent trip to Lunga, one of the Treshnish Isles on the west coast of Scotland.

One puffin busy nest building whilst the others stand around chatting! Thought this could be good for a caption competition!
