Robins nest

By Mike_Young
A few from my archives, a Robin nested in an old galvanised tin bath hanging on the back of my garden shed, an opportunity not to be missed!! I turned the shed into a studio, cut a small hole in the back of the shed so that I could see into the nest and from the time the chicks hatched was able to record the whole event until they fledged.

Thanks to all for the votes and clicks on yesterdays image.

A fine series of shots, Mike. I'm fascinated by the size of that worm. Do you think they shared it? No, probably not!
