Robin at one end of the log, and at the other end another beauty, this time a lovely golden Horse Chestnut leaf frond that has hung on until the previous night's gale.

Although probably a line-of-site effect, this juxtaposition of Fieldmouse (Wood Mouse) and Robin has a certain drama.

Goodness me, a tree sparrow and Robin so close they could easily touch. Are they discussing who dropped the feather in front of them?

Happy event! The robins at this site that we see everyday in photos, and often lurk in the nearby trees when we visit this site, have obviously fledged their youngsters. This is a montage of two consecutive images that may or may not be the same fledgling.

The two Robin images on then right side are accurately positioned about150mS apart.

4 different small bird species (and a white feather) make a pleasing composition without any changes from the original frame.
This sort of layout is usually the result of photoshopping in bird seed adverts!

Young robins don't have red chests. Note the yellow edge to the beak it still uses for begging food from its parents.

A robin singing but out of our earshot. What a pity.

A robin nicely poised on the small log. Warmer weather now so not as plumped out as the image for 17 Jan 2006 (taken on the 12th)

A bit near the right edge of the field of view for artistic crop, but this robin, about to land with claws outstretched and legs bent ready to absorb the impact of landing, catches our fancy.
