  • He certainly is stuffing them in!

  • Wendy Xmas did indeed come early for your Robin with all the wax worm in the dish, so funny to see it trying to cram them all into it's beak.
    Hazy lovely photos of the young Robin getting it's mealies, also quite a few going down the throat proving how beneficial feeding them is to help the parents.

    Lot to learn

  • Amazing pics aitch, no chance of that scenario here though as Robin is taking food to a location about three houses away!

  • Hope you have enough mealies to last the trip! And when you do return, check the boot for stowaways :)

  • lol Nigel, I have half a kilo for these three days and another half kilo for our garden birds when I get home so all should be ok ! Another fresh kilo ordered for Friday. Getting worried about Jim as left him on the reserve at 3.30pm and he hasn't checked in yet !!    perhaps he's still feeding robins    LOL

  • Has Jim turned up yet? Mind you, if he's not with the Robins he'll have found an otter or something.

  • Yes Nigel, Jim eventually turned up at 7.40pm so he's safely checked in now and hopefully he will show you some very special photos at some stage :) but not relating to this thread !

    : @ Paul - glad you liked them; I have tons of pics but many are similar poses so only chose these few.
