"Fed Up"

"Fed Up"

At the foot of our cottage garden are a few sheds, one is a potting shed that has become home annually to several birds. This year the blackbird family have laid two batches of eggs. I try to avoid disturbing them during this period especially while they are sitting on their nests. I even put off my gardening chores until all the fledglings have left.  

But this year Mrs Blackbrid has outdone herself. She is now sitting on the second new brood and looking thoroughly sorry for herself. In fact she looks downright "Fed Up" . Which became the title for this fun painting as the subject was far too much fun to resist working on. 

Her face says it all!

Fed Up!
