Blackbird Fledgling - Turdus merula

This beautiful photo probably shows the first time this fledgling had left his nest to explore the balcony by Newington Green where it had been so carefully looked after by both its parents.

However, the fledgling did not stay very long looking at the outside world and it shortly retreated back to the safety of its nest.
