Cheeky Robin

Recommended Posts

An amazing pleasure out of such a small incident. There was I trimming the laurel when not two feet away this little tinker decided to join me. Stayed for a minute or two. Enough for polite conversation..........

I always talk to the robins that visit our garden. They are always close by when there is a chance of getting some live food. 

My favorite bird

I have a video of two Robbins knocking seven bells out of each other. I filmed it from three yards for about 10 mins.

When the fish aren't biting, it livens up my day when the robins come along and nick maggots, right next to my right foot.

I always compare Robins to rugby hookers. Relatively small, chippy, love a scrap. I have four in my garden that tolerate each other (at a distance) but always kicking the tits off of the feeders.

Ouch.. 

Wondered why we have milk delivered and we don't drink it. 

We have a gas fire and I still get the coalman around for payment

That was my old fella, little Robin sat on his bait stand nicking all his pinkies,  I feed them in the hide.

I have started to notice the behaviour of birds more (too much time on my hands). My feeders are normally dominated by the blue tits. But at certain times of the day I have about 20 long tail tits who visit. They always come along together, spend up to an hour feeding and then disappear.

If the birds are of interest to you, then the canary keeping, breeding etc, that I suggested in your retirement post could be an enjoyable and absorbing thing to occupier your time.

We have a one legged Robin called Bobbin who rules our garden. He talks to my missus every morning when she feeds him but is a total savage when other Robins appear, he tolerates spuggies, blue tits etc most of the time.
