Throwback Thursday travels back to a garden shed in Hatherton, Cheshire in the spring of 1987.
I was documenting the nesting cycle of a pair of Eurasian Blue Tits using a specially constructed nestbox built into a garden shed.
At this point all the eggs have hatched but the young are still small and naked. As a result, on cool mornings the female stays on the nest keeping them warm while the male feeds them.
In this photo the female has moved off the nest so that the male can feed a caterpillar to one of the young.
