Sweet Robin’s Antics & Last of the Snow Photos

So, hot on the heals after posting photos of Sweet Robin in the snow (and thank you so much for liking them 🙂 ) here are the last of my photos of the snow.  How beautiful it all looked just a few short days ago.  Now it is wet, windy and grey…

Before doing so, a quick update on Sweet Robin who made another appearance yesterday:  There seems to be quite a game going on with him, the Blackbird (and his female friend who made her debut appearance… I know because she is brown and, by-the-way,  I should mention at this stage that I’m no bird expert by any means but I do love nature and wildlife and, as such, I shall endeavour to get my facts as correct as possible) and the mischievous Blue Tits.  At one point, Sweet Robin was darting about in a kind of figure-of-eight with one of the Blue Tits all around the garden before seeing him off, by which time even the Blackbirds, who had been back at the feeders but had been observing these shenanigans, decided to take off.

Sweet Robin then zoomed up to the top of the neighbour’s roof which overlooks our garden to survey his kingdom, and very proudly too, I might add.  So proud of my boy! From there he twittered for some time (from his beak I mean, not his mobile phone…) and then, satisfied that he had got his message across, he flew off for another day.  20 minutes of joy on Sunday from Sweet Robin and friends (well, I like to think they are all friends…)

Here are the snow photos, hope you enjoy them…

    I love your Sweet Robin posts! And your photos are beautiful. As soon as I saw that your Robin was different than our in the U.S., I guessed it was England (only because in the movie, The Secret Garden, that is what your Robin looks like).

      Thank you so much for visiting my blog and I’m glad that you enjoyed reading about Sweet Robin and looking at the photos. I am not a professional photographer by any means but my little Sony Cybershot digital camera works quite well 🙂 Yes, our English Robin is quite different to the American one. As you may know from my ‘About’ page, I lived in California for 17 years with my family and one of my daughter’s most favourite stories which I would read to her was called ‘My Spring Robin’. I remember then telling her that the pictures in the book of the robin were a little different to robins over here! The Secret Garden is one of my favourite books and movies too. Robins, like red letter boxes and pubs seem to be a very British thing!

    Now the snow has gone your photos are a lovely reminder of the beauty of snow and ice. Let’s forget about the slush and difficulty getting around!! Your photos are beautiful and it’s a joy to hear all about “your robin.” I really hope he will stay in your garden and raise a family. I look forward to hearing more
