So cute, my favourite little bird, I believe they can be quite aggressive though.,
He looks so intelligent. I love robins.
A Robin in between many thorns
Robins will approach because they know people bring food!lovely photo
There used to be a little Robin in Rivington church yard that would fly to you as soon as he saw you and feed from your hand..what a lovely feeling that was..it was worth going there if only for that...but the last time we went there was no sign of him/her..and David,that's a lovely shot ..thank you.
A great photo David.
Nice pic for this early springtime.
His (or her ) front is orange.
Contradicts the traditional Robin Redbreast image.
Lovely photo tho !
Well done David, lovely photo, like the background on this the grayish colours bring the Robin out,hes a beauty.
Yes Veronica they are very territorial especially against other robins, and, as you say, they can be very aggressive. I believe a robin, in its lifetime, never strays more than two or three hundred yards from where it was born.
Nicely captured David.
A lovely photo, thank you.
This would make a great Christmas card David.
I think I may have mentioned before how robins appear as if by magic as soon as I get garden tools out of the shed. How do they know there may be grubs etc. to be had?
Thats a really good shot David. I thought at first that might be a gorse bush he is sitting on but on second thoughts it looks to be a bit to spiteful...
I saw a wren this morning near the back door, so tiny & so quick.
Ah, our wonderful and brave little national bird always a joy to see
Beautiful Rev, Spring is almost here.
I'll drink a glass of sherry to that, cheers.
If you go to Dobbies garden centre they have a resident Robin. We have seen it for the last 3 years
PeterP, are you sure ? .... the average lifespan of a robin is 2yrs.
No contest when choosing the prettiest tip.
Mike has I cannot do a ID on this bird I am not really bothered but there is a Robin on site every year.
Nice photo Rev. You said it was but a yard away, was that the front yard or the back yard
Thanks for the comments - it was on a gorse bush. The robin's curiosity was raised by my stopping to relieve myself in the bushes....
Ohhhh Rev, Holy water.
