Is is two or three?

Much ado about nothing today in terms of going out and about. I did manage to get a great deal of tidying up done in the garden though.

And throughout the day today, I was kept company by not one, but two robins - they are definitely a pair.

As I toiled away, I was serenaded beautifully by this robin.

and then I managed another shot. BUT looking at the chest markings I now realise that this was the second robin. Again this is interesting, because I have another regular robin that is ringed. I just can't quite tell whether the singing robin is ringed or not.

Interesting that the robins stayed in the garden nearly all the time I was out there today and even when I was just watching through the window. Great - I do like Robins :D

I love to look at your U.K. Robins. They are so different from the ones we have here. Great pictures.

Evening Tricia

I love the top Robin with his mouth open. Phil was saying yesterday that I need a decent camera like yours to get a really good photo of the robin that I was trying to take at Wisley.I clicked on it and got it in full size which was even better, !! Jackie.

They are such friendly birds aren't they. I love it when I am digging and they come around for the mealworms.

I love the photographs, the first one is so beautiful......

Hi again, Tricia :-)

I agree - great first shot! Funnily enough We've had three visiting robins too which I have thought quite strange. By their behaviour, I am wondering if we have a pair visiting too :-D

Have a great weekend :-D

My thanks to you all.

It was great to see and hear him/her and I was lucky the camera was just inside the back door.

Just wished I'd had time to adjust the setting for a better pic though.
