Juvenile Nightingale in the garden

It had been a few years, since we had such good views of a Nightingales in our garden, as with this adult bird, seen below taken some years ago.

This adult may be the parent bird, photographed a week before the juvenile.

A juvenile bird spent an afternoon at the bottom of the garden, energetically looking for food. 

We are unsure if it is a fledgling from a nearby nest or perhaps it is just resting and feeding on it's long journey to Africa.

A special moment, most sightings of Nightingales are like below, from a distance in the early spring, as they sing their beautiful song.

I hope our juvenile will return safely next Spring, and serenade our nights,
because, to hear a nightingale's song, trilling forth in the darkness, is one of the most beautiful sounds in the world.
