I love Robins, and have studied these guys for the last two seasons, but this season they are being thrown totaly out of sync. Its bitterly cold here in the UK at present, but 3 weeks ago it was quite mild and felt like spring was just around the corner so they started their courtship and nest building, twice their little nest has been blown apart by the winds, but today she was off again rebuilding, whilst the male sat in the tree keeping watch. www.bevbarkerphotos.comwww.k9imageworld.com

It took a few weeks of being very patient but when he finally landed on my hand it was worth all the wait! I posted these a while back but in case you didnt see them here they are again, yours too could be doing this in a while, and fingers crossed for the nest box.
