The robin has been around most days that I’ve been plotting usually arriving with a whirr of wings and a flash of red to perch either in the blackberry bush or, as seen here, the blackthorn. Doing some forking over or hoeing means that he generally gets a few worms.
I always check the ponds and nearby water tank to make sure that they haven’t iced over and are topped up. I do that so birds can drink from them.
Crows, as seen here, and pigeons drink from the latter.
I’ll be looking round the allotments later on before going to the horticultural society trading shed where I’m almost sure to see a robin. This picture was taken when I was there a few weeks ago. He’s on the path just outside the doorway waiting for some meal worms.
At home during the week I briefly saw a pied wagtail a couple of times which is an unusual sighting there so I hope to see it again to get a better look.
Have a good week!
