Uppity Little Birds, Robins

IMG_2062

But it’s always cheering to spot one. Even more so if they burst into song and brighten up a wintery twilight. But they can be fractious, being fiercely territorial when it comes to seeing off competitors. They are also very demanding. For much of last year I had one appear as soon as I started work on my allotment plot. If I went near any of my compost heaps, it was there at my feet, demanding that I instantly turn over the heap so it could stuff itself with worms. Obviously I had been labouring under a misapprehension thinking I was the allotment holder. Silly me. As I said: robins rule. I was just there as the field hand.

  1. Such a cute little bird. Was this for Bird Weekly too? If so, the pingback didn’t work. If so, let me know and I will add it to the round up. The link you sent me didn’t work. 🙂

      1. You didn’t miss the boat. I’m still working on it. I had some stuff go into spam and another blog was in there. We are good to go and I will post it soon. 🙂
