We seem to be inundated with Robins this year - everywhere we go
there will be a robin waiting hopefully on a branch. Here one is
taking off directly towards the camera - for once not an out of

A robin at photo site 1 is constantly aggressive and seem to be
willing to threaten anything - in this case a Dunnock out of crop
to the right.

Robin vs 2 Great Tits.
Looks to us like the Robin is relishing the challenge, but more
likely is just determined to get at the food in the peanut feeder
to the left and will force his way past.

A chaffinch with head just in frame on the original was on the
receiving end of this tirade.

Just as it was getting light, this Robin and Dunock disagree
about who owns this patch of land. Doesn't look like there was
much left by way of nibbles left to fight over.

A brave/crazy Robin getting stroppy with a Redwing many
times its weight.

Our robins all continue to flourish and visit all the feeding
sites at all daytime hours.

The aerial antics of a robin twisting through a right angle
as it leaves with a crumb of peanut.

effortlessly maneuvers in the air.

Judging by the focus, flash shadow etc., the robin really is
under the pheasant's tail. The contrast in size is startling.

Two images of the same Robin, accurately montaged 10 minutes apart.
The left-right symmetry is close to perfect (this is NOT an optical flip).

Never managed to catch so many robins together in one image (even
if the end chick is out of focus). Another successful family.

The robin nest has fledged and we THINK this is the robin parents for
that nest still collecting food for them. We haven't managed to see any of
the youngsters - mum and dad take the insect food deep into the wood piles!

This robin has landed just after the stone top was restocked with food,
and the bird looks like it can't wait to get started.

Not seen a robin in quite this pose before. He is probably trying to
wheedle a bit of nut from in a crack in the bark.
