Meet the youngster

Over the last year or so, we have built a rather special relationship with a robin in our garden.

The story is worthy of a longer post, but as a bit of a taster, here’s an image of the last fledgling from the multiple broods raised by ‘our’ robin this spring who came to the back door to feed this morning.

As you can see from the picture, there are no signs yet of the development of the red breast, unlike another juvenile that I photographed in mid-June 2014, indicating that individual was born in an earlier brood of that spring.
