Day Nineteen - Young Robin returns
I had help in the garden today
The young robin we spotted last week is now a regular visitor to the bird feeders. It has learnt to perch and eat from the hanging feeders as well as using the ground feeders. I wonder where its parents are? As they can produce two or three broods a year they are probably looking after a second brood and this little one has been taught to fend for itself.
It came quite close as I was clearing a patch of garden under an old buddleia tree and gave me such a look with its beady eye as I chatted to it. It began to look for worms in the overturned soil.
It is quite a fearless creature but I'm not sure if that is good for it though as the grim reaper aka Sparrowhawk passes by this garden regularly. Stay safe little robin.
