My Baby Robin

I have been watching the birds in my garden today and for the first time I have seen two baby Robins. I watched as both parents were were feeding both of them. What a joy is was to watch. As you can see I managed to get a photo of one. The garden has been really busy birds today and when the sun came out this afternoon there seemed to be even more. These tiny birds work so hard to keep their babies alive it is just such an amazing thing to watch and really gives you a warm glow.

    My husband and I take immense joy in watching the wildlife in our garden. The baby birds are just so cute.

    Gorgeous picture! I see you have transformed into a Westie. My youngster had her first haircut recently so I kept some of the hair which is now placed in bushes around the garden. We have blackbirds and dunnocks building so I like to think their nests might be lined with something soft and white.

    I combed and washed my Lab twice a year on the patio and I'm not joking how much hair used to come out! That's one thing I don't miss, although I also left fluffy piles of it around for the birds. I guess you can also compost it, I never thought of that at the time.
