Spring Weather? Pah!

By teocali
A rather bedraggled and cross-looking little Robin (Erithacus rubecula) battling with windy, rainy weather, more like winter than spring. Taken in our garden yesterday.

How cute is this! He looks like he's got a little skirt on. His little toe nails are digging in like he's holding on from being blown away. Love it.
