European Robin, group feeding

I watched three Robins today which were feeding together on a lawn. They all fed within a 3m radius and were not at all territorial as they usually are.

I've never seen this before?

There are two who will feed happily together in our front garden, about 1 metre apart.

I once saw five Robins feeding together just outside my pub window, in hard weather in January (Fingle Bridge, R Teign, Devon).

Were yours in Russia Andy ?

No Dave,
back home in Nottingham, seen from my kitchen window.

They usually go nuts when they see each other but they were happily foraging in very close proximity to each other and I've just never seen them do that.

We have Great Tits singing here now too, well, their spring call at least.
