    This Robin was, of course, in the most awkward place for light you can imagine, I had quite a lot to do in post-processing to get this result. Hope I've not overdone it. To add to the difficulties, it was taken through the car windscreen.

    I had to go to Forfar for a post-op checkup and eye test in March, for my new specs; so on the way home decided to call in at the Kinnordy reserve. The hides weren't open, of course, as we were still in lock down, but there's a feeding station in the woodland. So armed with some feed to top up...

    It was a cloudy day and dark under the canopy. Nice to see a robin to brighten my mood.
  5. Gated


    I park my car beside a gate. My friend usually has put some feed on top of the gate post before I get there. It proves pretty popular as you can see by this Robin tucking in. Unfortunately I often have to take the pictures through my windscreen.

    Hope you're not fed up with Robin pictures, but they were so showy that day and this one came pretty close too.

    .... he thought the coconut would be more to his taste, even with a Coal Tit supervising his antics.

    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

    Cold feet

    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.

    Sitting on my garden fence one summer, wondering whether to eat up both insects at once!

    You're never far from a Robin I guess. And there are a few hanging around the feeder area on this path. I like to scatter some seed on the ground for them.

    Thanks lady

    When I go to those feeders, I usually put some seeds and stuff on the ground. This Robin seemed rather appreciative anyway.

    It’s rude not too, when they hop in front of the lens.😊
