Great to see the robin enjoying his waxworm treats; you need a shallower dish or he'll be on bottoms up thread lol !!
post edit: forgot to ask Wendy, how did you get on last year raising Waxworms as I seemed to have missed the outcome. Think Jim tried too but not sure he had success.

Sounds like a great idea your local nature reserve had - maybe Leighton Moss should start a robin hand feeding experience where visitors can buy a few mealies or waxworms from them ! Think they did consider having live mealworms to sell again so will check if they've made any decisions next week when I revisit. Seems like I have a GT hopping up and down outside the window telling me the mealie dish needs topping up LOL gotta gooooo ............................ !!
Sorry to have pinched your thread Gaynor but thought you'd like to see Robin's new shallow dish ... much better don't you think?
Lot to learn
Fabulous photos Gaynor, I'm guessing the mountains are the Carneddau (or possibly the Glyders), which I know did have a dusting of snow early May.
I love Highland cattle.
