That's beautiful david.


Comment by Maureen on 15th February 2018 at 07:29
Just beautiful..thank you David.


Comment by Veronica on 15th February 2018 at 08:53
I've bought some different 'fat balls' but they don't seem interested in them. This little robin looks like he wouldn't turn his beak up at them!


Comment by Stan disher on 15th February 2018 at 09:39
you're up before the birds Alan, no more early welding or stores eh !


Comment by David Barker on 15th February 2018 at 10:00
Excellent David,takes a good photo that Canon ,very sharp and clear.


Comment by irene roberts on 15th February 2018 at 11:13
What a beautiful, intelligent face! I love robins.


Comment by Maureen on 15th February 2018 at 11:31
Veronica,we've been out for ours this morning,have to look after the little 'uns don't we.


Comment by Veronica on 15th February 2018 at 12:29
I got the more expensive ones from Wilcos's for a change Maureen. They are bigger with more seeds in them and they aren't even touching them. (they're probably going next door!)


Comment by Anne on 15th February 2018 at 14:37
Girls, I make my own using Atora and any brand of mixed seed plus peanuts. Then I use any kind of nets even old mesh tights. No shortage of birds, they keep coming back.


Comment by Alan on 15th February 2018 at 14:46
The "fat balls" are more for tits than Robins. The photo shows seeds on the ground, that's what Robins like.


Comment by Maureen on 15th February 2018 at 15:08
Veronica,sometimes the manufacturers bulk them up with seed that they don't like..lately we've been getting them from B& M and they eat it all..mind you Cliff chops it all up for them...what's he like.


Comment by Maureen on 15th February 2018 at 16:53
Anne,I used to make them with Atora,but I couldn't keep up with them so now I mix their seed with a block of lard..softened in the microwave then put in a yoghurt pot..with string through the bottom.


Comment by Garry on 15th February 2018 at 19:32
Clever Maureen, well done.
Well, it's time for a sherry..cheers.


Comment by Beryl on 15th February 2018 at 19:33
Ahh! Rob's back, nice to see him again


Comment by Maureen on 15th February 2018 at 19:51
Thank you Garry but I can't be that clever..otherwise I wouldn't need to do the lottery every week...twice awwwww


Comment by Veronica on 16th February 2018 at 09:00
The birds are back this morning! There was even a Robin chasing the others off.
I would put seeds down on the ground but I don't want pigeons coming - they're a pest.


Comment by Lou on 16th February 2018 at 10:38
Robins love mealworms, they are gone in no time.
