[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here is the promised close up of my mate scrag, perhaps not as well composed as the other shot but he would insist on getting closer than my lens could take.
The robin is loved by all gardeners as he is inquisitive and entertaining, with a heart beat of more than 1000 beats a minute. He hides in the dimly lit and overgrown part of my garden, swooping down to let me know when to be fed, either at the bird table or when I am digging.
He is one of the few birds to sing after dark and his loud warbling song becomes more melancholy in winter.
