Merry Christmas everyone, I hope you have had a joyful day however you have spent it. Our robin has been on good form today, whether he knows it is Christmas or just liked the meal worms my dad put out for him, he was around a lot and stayed in the garden while we were out there, on the feeders and on the ground, watching us and happy for us to be around. As I have mentioned before, I love that process of building up trust and getting to know a bird like that. My sister got a lovely couple of shots of him and I have her permission to repost them here.
When she was looking through her photos my sister did comment that the robin likes posing and I think she is right to an extent, some of it is territorial behaviour though.
Last but not least, my favourite band, Rend Collective Experiment have released a Christmas video today, a version of Hark the Herald Angels Sing that is full of energy and joy, hope you like it.
