We have one sulky, scrawny Robin in the garden, no fun at all.
Earlier in the year we had a proper cheeky Robin but I noticed
its top mandible was broken or missing. I made a feeding
platform for it with foodstuff we felt it could manage and it
lasted a fair while but it disappeared never to be seen again.
First goldfinch of the winter on the feeders this morning, we also have a Pavlov’s response wood pigeon who hangs around on the fence and drops down under the feeders when the songbirds arrive to feed.
Our occasional sparrowhawk knocked off another of our robins this morning as the light increased. Two in a couple of weeks. If it had given it another half hour there would have been the choice of six collared doves which I had down as a more decent piece of prey.
