Second Broods

I noticed over the last few weeks that many of our birds with second broods like the adult Stonechats below, are struggling in the wet conditions to feed their young, due to the driving the tropical monsoon conditions that we now regard as summer.  But it always amazes me to see how determined they are to succeed with a second family.  I only hope that the chicks survive when they do manage to leave the nest.
