we have a little family of them in our garden, and the biggest one, i think he must be the daddy is very brave, when ever i am digging he sits on the handle of the folk/spade (the one i am not using!) and watches and waits for his oppotunity for a worm and then swoops down and then off, 5 miniutes later he is back for another!. but he won't let me get a good picture of him either, i have tried several times managed to get a couple but not good ones. i give them loads of food, but the only problem is we get lots of bigger birds that bully them. but i put so much out there they all manage to get plenty!

You get birds bullying your robins? We have a fierce one hear - he lets the sparrows up on the feeders and fat balls but as soon as they come near the ground where the bits have fallen he attacks them!! I guess he thinks the bottom bits are for him!! Again I find it difficult to take pics because I watch through a net curtain and as soon as you move it hes off. Cheeky chap though!

Do you get wood pigeons on your bird feeders? I do and I get really annoyed because one can clear all the food in less than a minute! I bang on the window, call Henry to chase them off, dash outside, but they just fly up into the nearest tree and laugh at me! they are getting SOOO daring! I will try to photo them - but I bet the sight of a camera will make them laugh even louder as they fly off....
