After spending the last few days down in the dumps I decided to visit the local bird hide before going shopping.I had just got out of the car when the birds began landing in the bushes. I had a half eaten biscuit so I went back for it and this cheeky little robin was in the bush not two foot away.I thought well why not........and put out my hand with some crumbs on.I couldnt believe it when he landed on my hand and began eating staying there for at least a minute.What a joy and when I began walking away he followed in the bushes so I put some on the barrier and down he came. I didnt even need any zoom he was so near. Needless to say I went home a lot happier.

How lovely to have a Robin who is so trusting. He has got a ring on his leg so at some time he has been handled.
