I have a feeling that the one on the right is Titch. I went into the garden when they disappeared and he flew past my ear onto the bench where he took a ittle pastry and flew away again.
It's only January folk but
Spring is on the way :-)
Lot to learn
Many birds will be getting ready to become families again, or for the first time.
Keep an eye out for the courtship feeding, it'll be nice to see the photos.

My tame Robin, which my wife and I have been feeding since last March, is still about. When he appears now it's usually with his partner, they'll both come when I whistle if they are not already about. He still comes to my hand while she waits in a nearby hedge and takes worms I leave and stand back from, but she is getting braver and gets quite close while waiting and took some worms from quite close to me this morning.
They also have had their moments of posturing as you have captured.
Lovely Gaynor :o)
As are the pics

gaynorsl said:I saw the courtship feeding last year Mike, but wasn't quick enough with camera. I am glad to see that Titch is allowed back into the garden! it must have been the female that kept him out for the last few months.
Yes the courtship is over all too quickly, but still good to see.
