More naturewatching

SO the baby blackbirds have flown the nest, though it looks like a new brood may be on the way sometime…so my interest has turned to these little fella’s that I found outside our house yesterday morning. Looks like some spider’s eggs hatched and there was just a writhing tangle of little legs.

Seems that they “huddle” when they want to sleep:

And this little video shows them wriggling a bit and gives you an idea of scale. The white box is the gas meter box outside our house.

Blogger now allows video uploads so the video is included here now too.
