Garden Robins

We are lucky in having two pairs of Robins nesting in our new garden - conveniently one in the front and one in the back. Even more conveniently the front garden pair have nested in a dwarf conifer right in front of the window!

They only laid two eggs and I originally thought they'd deserted but when I checked on returning from Oz there were two young.  We had a wet spell and maybe that deterred the female from laying if she couldn't find enough food.

The youngsters have been duly ringed and both adults had already been ringed and I took the opportunity to photograph them through the bedroom window.
