Can anyone id him? The robin that always follows me around the garden brought a mate this time. I’ve got a picture of them together too.

    Agree.  That's this year's youngster.  The long legs and speckly breast is a give away.  Gradually you'll begin to see the redbreast feathers become obvious.

    Yes, baby robin. I have one like that plus one that's almost got a red breast in my garden, so cute  :)

    So cute .I have one that follows me round the garden too he sings to me as I work. Also have a collard dove that waits for me on the gatepost whenever I go out. 
    Don’t suppose it’s really so ……but I like to think it is!

    That's a lovely picture Ilikeplants, a young one watching as its parent shows it what to do and probably waiting for food.

    Awww, love your Robins 🥰 isn't it great watching them teach/learn? 

    'Our' starling babies are very different - one already taking feathers up to the nest and going short distances alone, and the other still wants feeding!

    It does warm the heart to see them being so brave around us big humans. They are very chatty too. They must feel very safe - no cats, dogs and even the children are hardly in the garden 🙄
    I also a blue tit yesterday. 
    Could do without the cheeky squirrels eating all the green strawberries though.

    Oh, we've got a baby as well then! We thought it was Lady Robin, but fits in with everything you've said @Ilikeplants. I'm tickled. I knew there was a nest in that Rhodi!
