When we got back from a weeks holiday - I was concerned - is he ok? Couldn't see him, was looking around, the cabin door was open behind me. Nowhere to be seen,! for quite a while - looked back and there he was in the cabin sitting on the back of the chair - propbably thinking "silly sausage - I'm here!!!" I was so pleased to see him. He seemed please to see me too!
After three days of not being about, we didn't see robin 5 for another few days. Another robin had been about trying to gain the territory earlier, we just hoped that our little baby robin was ok.
The visiting robin was about today, he has a very white area and is quite orangy - so isn't too bad to see he is the visitor. Suddely another robin appeared on the step of the cabin, (I was sitting inside) he flew back onto the feeding pole station and seemed quite chuffed! the other visitor was also visible in the conifers next door. I was confused this robin was all red SURELY HE ISNT OUR BABY ROBIN WITH JUST A LITTLE AREA RED? I called hubby who thought it could be. I put a mealworm onto my hand and he flew straight and got it. How lovely, he is ok.
A little later, he came and got more, landing and staying on my hand for a long time, looking at me and around. His little feet slipped between my fingers, so this was confirmation, all is well!
None of the above has been checked so please excuse errors - or let me know - thanks. R
