    1. I think that he needs the sun on his back to encourage singing, Jo and not much of that today!

    1. We're hoping he will set up home with his mate in a box we have where a web cam is set up, Elaine. The front hole part has been removed specially!

  4. Fabulous photos. So clear! Robins seem to be completely at ease with humans. They often come down to investigate when I'm digging or planting, just to see if they can grab any insects from the soil I'm turning - sometimes within a few inches of my hands.

    1. I think the fact he was at the top of the tree with blue sky in the background helped, Mark. Silhouetting was avoided as the sun was shining on his front rather than behind him

    1. We had several when the weather was poor Kelli. All keeping their distance but I reckon this one and his mate are staking their claim for nesting rights.

  8. Great photos Sue. We have a regular Robin visitor too. Fingers crossed for them nesting in the cam box...that will be great to see.

    1. He's still singing despite the weather, Tanya - bless him but no sign of anything setting up home in the cam boxes yet.
