A Robin Erithacus rubecula, decided to call in at The Coppice feed station yesterdaySmile
Another first for the current season. In fact it was the last shot of the sessionSmile

When we had the real cold spells, during the last two Winters, I have counted up to six at any one time, flitting about amongst the bushes.
I guess territorial rights go out of the window, when hunger takes overWink

Many thanks to Paul (lawbert), Fred (Badgerfred) & Carol (CarolG), for their generous awards, given to yesterday's L-ttTongue
Really appreciated folksGrin

No togging at the woods today, as we have a rearranged cup game, away from home, but might manage a ride around, to see if there are any Waxwings about

Well done again, Adrian superb capture.
I too noticed a Robin increase earlier this week when we had a bit snow.
Went from 2 to 5 at the hide.
Good luck in the cup.

Crisp & clear, Adrian.

I hope you don't have to wait too long before finding Waxwings. For the past several winters I'd heard of Waxwings at various local sites but was never able to find them - I did this year & they were virtually on my doorstep, so you never know where they'll turn up.
