It's almost Christmas so here is a lovely little Robin.............. and friends

Marbury Country Park has two bird hides... one overlooking Budworth Mere and
 the other is in the woods I filmed the little Robin feeding from my hand.
One post... three species.

 Robin (Erithacus rubecula)

Is that a newspaper under your arm?

 Nuthatch (Sitta europaea)

Grey Squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis)

All taken on the same post on the same day.
This wonderful perch has unfortunately been removed a few months ago.

I am really taken with the robin photographs each time I see them; the nuthatch is most interesting too of course. The squirrels appear much more diminutive than I'd visualized. Seeing them on a skinny post like this; they really must be petite. Beautiful photos again.

Great photos. Love them. Our Robins here in Canada fly south for the winter. I think they may be onto something!

Those robins are just ever so cute - pretty birds - we rarely see robins here.

what lovely photos, it was obviously a very popular perch while it lasted.

I love your little newspaper under your little robin's wing, Andrew. And I love the blue spray of your grey squirrel's tail, and his snugness.
You take some wonderful photos, you really do.
