A Robin popped out from under a bush near the feeders to forage on droppings in the grass verge..
Behind him is a steep drop down to the river Ericht. Actually there is a crash barrier at this point in case they're going too fast to stop themselves! LOL
I don't seem able to get many pictures of my Robin at home for some reason (perhaps this picture goes some way to explain why LOL).
Sadly I've not much snow in this picture to make it worth thinking about for a Christmas card... oh well!
Wind has dropped here a bit and it's therefore a bit...
Back at the edge of town feeders. Fortunately, the parking area wasn't too bad for the snow, though a little icy in places.
The Robin thought all his Christmases had come together, when he found all this food on the ground. Not sure how he's going to swallow that wee nugget though, looks like...
We had to wait a few days before going back to the feeding station, in the hope that the snow had thawed a bit. Which it had..... but as you can see there was still some lying about.
The feeders were just about empty, so a good job we went. A Robin and Dunnock were soon there to hoover up what...
Another visit to Craighall. I caught this Robin feeding on a hanging feeder, they don't even do that at home, preferring the tray ones.
He seems quite at home on there don't you think, so I guess he's been practising his technique while I've been absent LOL
The first snow of the year came overnight on the 2/3 January here, but as you can see it wasn't too much fortunately.
Poor Robin, but I did give him some seeds to eat and put some on top of the gate post too so he could warm his feet a little.
