.......catches the worm. This Robin (Erithacus rubecula) has nested in our garden and is currently, with its partner, feeding a family. The nest is deep inside an evergreen bush and I have no idea how many babies there are, or what their stage of development is. Hopefully they will fledge safely and I will be around when it happens.

Thank you for your support of my last upload. Much appreciated as always.

An interesting scenario to have in your garden and hopefully may provide further photo opportunities, Sylvia.
A very fine shot of the Robin and it's capture, excellent detail and very natural colours.
