Everytime I turn some soil in the garden this robin is always first on the scene, stalking with ever watchful eyes. He's getting bolder and bolder so I turned the camera on him !!

Aren't you lucky to have his company ? A few years ago I was clearing rubbish etc. from a neglected bit of paving at the side of a house, and disturbing a lot of spiders in the process..... I was amazed how quickly I was spotted by a local pair of robins who were feeding their fledglings at the time. They must have sensed I was not a danger, and were literally landing on the ground between my feet as I worked, to snatch up every single spider. It was an amazing experience.
Nothing better in life than gardening in nice weather with a robin to keep you company!
