It took time and alot of patience for our Robin friend to get the confirdence to eat from our hands, but now he has trust in us he wont even wait sometimes before we have the pastry ready. Sorry about the background in some of these but i grabbed the camera and all the important things like composition, light etc went straight out the window! a lesson learnt.

It took a few weeks sitting near him and throwing the foodnearto him,before he would actually hover over my hand and take the food, then one day he landed and since thenhe hasgot quite cocky! to get my notice if i am in doors he sits on my kitchen window ledge and "peep peeps" until i take notice. I have 5 dogs and they have all become quite good friends, he has even trained the dogs that if i have'nt heard him calling, one of the dogs come and whine at me, as much to say "Bob Robin needs feeding again" sorry iv rambled on a bit, but iv become quite attached to Bob and only hope he finds a mate and i have another robin family born in the garden again this spring.
