Just a couple of Titch taken this morning as he was having a quick splash
He is doing his fare share of singing, and this morning chased away (I think) another Robin.
Lot to learn

A new area and robin for Paul ………….. CWR (Carsington Water robin) !
In reply to monkeycheese:
monkeycheese said:Maybe it's the camera angle that's thrown me. Is that the same bird in every pic?
There were at least two robins chasing one another around; I will have to check the other pics I have and get back to you on that one; think No.1 robin is different to No.2 & 3 which are the same. Ok, I've taken a look through the dozen pics and mostly they are the same robin but think these two pics taken same place, around same time are different. …….
Robin 1 (which is same robin as pics 2 & 3)
Robin 2 looks slightly different ….. will leave it to you to decide as you study them more than me lol
I finally managed to lure Little HTR from the holly tree and got a few pics of him in the flowering currant earlier this morning. He's still singing his little heart out every day but has yet to attract a female admirer. I have heard the occasional ditting while he's been singing, but I have yet to see the Robin responsible. Hopefully there will be a female around soon. Pairing up time often provides decent photo ops.
