Mrs B and family

Mrs B has been taking advantage of our mealworms supply while our Robbie is away recuperating and getting through his moult after bringing up his chicks.
She's got these two chicks. We've haven't seen a male blackbird on the scene at all. She packs her beak full of worms and the chicks are just brave enough to get quite close to us now, but prefer to be amongst the potato haulms or in the hedgerow.
Not too clear from this pic which one is the adult!

Please leave a comment. I'm very pleased to receive corrections or confirmations of my identification of the creatures we've spotted on the allotment.
