A Robin (Erithacus rubecula) taken in the garden today in strong sunlight. This chap was treating me to a real vigilante act, taking the law into his own claws and systematically dive bombing the smaller birds and knocking them off the feeders!

Many thanks for your C&Cs on yesterdays Siskin - very much appreciated as always Smile

The Charles Bronson of the bird world repelling all invaders to your garden! He certainly is a feisty little character who looks as bold as brass and this is a fine shot of him in typical authoritative pose. Any birds that dare to set foot on his tiny territory that he defends so fiercely must have a death wish!
