a rare visit to my garden by this young robin who had a good splash and feed.He was a little bit of a bully to a dunnock not letting it near the feeder.Sadly I have had another lovely chaffinch die with trichy so its down with the feeders again.:(

Its been a while but was lovely to see the grey wagtail again in my stream.

Lovely to see the young Robin and the Wagtail Sheila and I loved the nuthatch on your previous post, I would love to see one here. So sorry to hear of the Trico again, we have had it here too, it is horrible.

Shysongbird thanks for your comments,did you take your feeders down?
Warren I just love my stream,worth all the hassle(and nearly a divorce) when we built it
Karen thanks for always a kind word that wagtail is a grey although I have had a yellow one(think they are more rare) once over.I could scream at that bloody tricho grrrrrrr

it's a treat to see the young robins come into your garden, obviously enjoying your wonderful stream, sorry about the chaffinch.

Hi Sheila. It is nice to see you doing whatever you can for wildlife. I think we would all like a stream in our garden, but a pond is the next best thing. Anything that attracts the wildlife.Nice bird photo's I occasionally get the Grey Wag visiting in the winter time.

You know how I feel with your horrid parasite deciding to visit again but stick with it my friend as I said to you we would all miss these delightful photo's
