Robin Redbreast

I have been working in the garden today - urgent things to do before the rain started - and it fell down this afternoon.

I couldn't resist taking a photo of this darling young robin that waited patiently for each spade full of soil - so that he could get to it before the chickens

He is so tiny

So inquisitive

He spends most of his days in our garden - we are a cat free zone - the bantams see to that!

I do hope he stays with us all winter

Gorgeous photos - robins are my favourite birds and we have two in the garden that follow us around. Such happy little birds.
