Good grief! I'll bet that deadweight needs a long runway to get off the ground.

Cracking photo David.


Comment by Vb on 29th January 2017 at 00:18
He's all puffed up with pride! Who are you looking at ... Do you want a picture?


Comment by David Barker on 29th January 2017 at 00:38
He's a beauty ,well captured David top marks.


Comment by Vb on 29th January 2017 at 00:59
I'll settle for nothing less than front cover of Vogue magazine if you please!!!
Well caught David

Nice shot. Robins don't seem as common as they used to be, more so in gardens. Around Dec I did see an unusual visitor to my garden, which I initially thought was either a Kestrel or Peregrine, but I think it was more likely a Sparrowhawk (had a yellow ring round its eyes). Still an unusual sight though.

I wonder what it's thinking with that expression on it's face.


Comment by Garry on 29th January 2017 at 08:22
One word, Fantastic.


Comment by Anne on 29th January 2017 at 08:25
Not weight simply fluffing feathers for more insulation against the cold.


Comment by Maureen on 29th January 2017 at 09:48
What a lovely shot to feast your eyes on in the morning...thank you David.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 29th January 2017 at 09:51
I do like a Robin. He's cowd not fat :) Cracker of a shot David.


Comment by Aubrey on 29th January 2017 at 10:13
I agree with all the compliments paid. Well done.

He's wearing the Robin version of a Puffa Jacket. Great shot well done.

Lovely photo, made me smile x don't they say to see a robin is the sign someone in heaven is visiting you x


Comment by Ellen on 29th January 2017 at 18:43
Agree with all of the above! I love to see a picture of an English robin, as I've said many times before!


Comment by Beryl on 29th January 2017 at 19:26
What a lovely bird and a great photo.


Comment by David on 29th January 2017 at 20:57
Thank you. This was not a shy robin, he came closer as I stopped to take a photo. Perhaps he is used to someone feeding him.


Comment by Vb on 30th January 2017 at 18:21
I don't think I have seen a Robin more cute than this one ! He really is a Robin with attitude!
