not like the robins here hello janet gibson. i tried to find you


Comment by Dennis Miller on 15th January 2011 at 07:36
Nice one! The Robin looks kinda confused regarding the strange bloke pointing a camera at it.

Off subject... are you the Lester Entwistle who worked at TBA Glass Fibre in the 70s?

Where's the Bat Man.

That's a lovely photo. I agree with you Gerald, the robins over here are nothing like the British ones. Nowhere near as photogenic.


Comment by anna on 15th January 2011 at 17:10
just feel like i want to cuddle it aww,my favourite bird.


Comment by Fred Mason on 15th January 2011 at 22:16
Cheeky little blighters.

I once had one take food from my fingers. What an experience.

They are quite tame and easily get used to us in the garden.

Oh,you made my day .Gorgeous little creatures.


Comment by Ellen on 16th January 2011 at 00:35
You made my day too; I have missed "real" robins all the time I've been in Canada. Thanks to WW and photo of the day, I'm seeing them quite regularly each winter. Thankyou to all photo posters!!!

Les... I don't know if you remember me, but I was the young lad who worked with Jimmy Flattely on packing just before Glass Fibre moved from the North Block to the Greenfield site?

I have another 12 years to retirement... now, how is that for Tempus Fugit?!!? I was 16 when I started work at TBA.

(Time Flies) :-D
