    Great stuff Tony! The Car Park Robins fledged on Monday by my reckoning. I have heard them every day and given waxies to the adults, but the fledglings have yet to appear. Maybe I'll take the camera today, just in case they start foraging for themselves.

    Probably not, Hazel. Because the weather's been so poor this spring I haven't been outside much so the birds are not used to me.

    I'd forgotten I'd taken this one a few days ago on my patch. I was trying for a Cetti's which was very vocal. I wasn't even sure what it was  I think it's a youngster because you can see the pin feathers. I think it must be a Robin but need MC's expertise to confirm.

    What a lovely juvenile, as you say,  would find it hard to confirm too but if it's a robin it looks to have fledged a while ago;
