I think these must be the baby robins getting their adult feathers. They're looking a bit rough around the edges at the moment!
Daddy blackbird has spent all day feeding two fledged babies. They're always trailing just behind him and even though they are perfectly capable of feeding themselves, they seem to prefer to be fed by him. I guess somebody else's food always tastes better than your own! This must be at least the blackbirds third brood this summer, so they're doing very well.

It's strange that we almost always see the Daddy Blackbird feeding the babies in the garden. With the Sparrows, it's always the Mum being hounded by her babies and they don't even bother to ask Dad.
I've also seen Blue Tits, Great Tits and the shy Dunnocks today. The Dunnocks aren't brave enough to take food from the table and prefer to feed on the ground, hidden away behind the tables and chairs.
