  • In reply to WendyBartter:

    Can't believe he can cram that many into his beak Wendy, I suppose he had seen Mrs B outside and thought he had better get in before she did. Good to see the action.

    Lot to learn

  • Glad to hear the HTR's are still around MC. Titch visits each day, at the moment it is a quiet period between broods I think as he no longer carries the food, but there is one youngster outside each day doing well looking after itself.

  • Paul which Park do you go to a lot is it St James's Park or the other?

  • Love that third pic Hazy.

    Lot to learn

  • Don't know how unusual this is and you can't really see it properly but this is a Robin nest that is on the floor, near a fence line and well hidden.

    My sisters dog found it Sunday morning and when they looked in there was 3 fully feathered chicks in it, they showed it me Monday and only one hadn't fledged.

    We looked in it today and the last one had fledged.

    and this I believe is one of the youngsters.

  • Our "one legged" robin seems to be coping well;   not sure what happened to this robin but one leg went black and eventually lost most of it as the blood supply was lost but the good news is that it has bred and is still feeding a brood somewhere, collecting live mealies by the threes.

    another robin here …. looking as if it has been in more than one scrap with other robins   !! 

    one legged Robin again .............  this bird really manages very well, can get into the guardian cage to access worms and perch ok.
