Robin blogging

I've done Robyn (the cat) blogging, I've done Robyn (Hitchcock) blogging so here's a Robin to complete the set

Bebe is not averse to bringing various examples of British garden fauna into the house, alive or dead, whole or pre-dismembered. This one was fortunately very much alive and kicking.

It took some doing but we managed to get it to fly out and off to do whatever it intended to do before the cat got it. I've just realised that I've never been that close to a Robin before.

Interesting in that this bird is so disimilar to the American bird named after it.

Don't forget: it's the Big Garden Birdwatch this weekend!

Strange that.. then again american badgers look a bit different too if I remember rightly

Ah yes,, sadly it is a brave or foolhardy bird to come into our garden, Roger what with four cats!

Waaahhh, I couldn't find the article, but its been reported that this is a bumper year in Texas for the Robin. Indeed, everywhere we've gone lately, we've witnessed giant flocks of them pecking the ground and sitting on power lines. Ordinarily, I wouldn't encourage my impressionable children to stare at a red breast, but in this case, I made an exception!

The last thing you want is for the kids to see sunburned boobies! Good call Ewbl!
