My Robin

Visible to anyone in the world

Here's my garden robin, obligingly posing for the camera.

Robins are very friendly little things

They are very comfortable around people. Many think that before humans were around here, Robbins had evolved to follow animals like wild boar, that turn over the ground and expose insects. That could be why the Robin follows the Gardener and from that Robins have learned to ask human beings to feed them. Anyway they are pretty smart little birds. 🙂

As usual from you, great photography with an even better narrative

What a great, intelligent looking, healthy, little bird.

I fed the jackdaws (in Buckle's Yard) this morning (just beyond our modest front garden).

'Our robin', from last year, seems to have disappeared. I hope he's OK. There have been two not that long ago. I understand though, that they're pretty territorial, so they might 'gaze' at us, approvingly, but not necessarily at a competitor?!

Great stuff Richard,
