Robins Of Cornwall

Erithacus rubecula

The ubiquitous Robin friend of the garden spade and old and young alike.
We have steadily added broken branches and look-out posts (they do not always enhance the view) to our small woodland garden and have been rewarded with a steady influx of new visitors and an increase in old. The posts give the birds added confidence as they can survey the ground below at a safe height from garden cats. They give us better photographic opportunities away from the dreary feeder shots that are the learning curve with all new backyard birding camera users.
The Robins have become friendly and are a joy to watch hopping about and grubbing for morsels here , there and everywhere.
Soon their youngsters will be making more serious sorties as they progress along the paths to independence and then hopefully will take up residence within short flying distance of our food surply.
