A trip back to the Craighall feeders and there's a cute young Robin, not long out of the nest and already learned what a coconut half contains LOL

Quick on the uptake some birds, aren't they.

Yes, it does look a very young Robin, still trying to get the hang of things! This is a really nice photo Delia: very good plumage detail, eye contact, a well balanced composition, and it's a bird doing something (as opposed to just a static portrait). It's interesting that the base of the uppertail is rufous, something I hadn't been aware of but is clearly shown in Collins. Well done!

This juvie seems younger than the ones I've seen in the Gallery and a beautifully detailed close up D!
