I have one in my garden, whether itís the same one I donít know.

It gets right up close to me when Iím removing leaves and uncovering some tasty morsel for it to eat....beautiful little bird, those legs are so tiny..
Oh they're bold alright. They're also ferocious little devils too. You should see a couple of males fighting over territory - my God, they don't half go at it.

This is true, Percy.

They are bold, and cheeky and don't fly off so readily as most other birds either.
I always believed them to be very territorial little birds, until last year when I saw three in my garden all at once. Perhaps they were all family.

Re: Robins

we had blackbirds nesting in a fir tree in the garden last year, the mother bird would come down to the kitchen door, hop up the steps where I stood and waited till I put the bread down, she didn't seem to be afraid, one afternoon we were sitting out in the garden, the back door was open, down she came hopped over to the door, looked around her and then hopped right into the kitchen. last week I was hanging out washing when a female blackbird followed me up the garden, it's great to watch them.

Re: Robins

We see robins in our garden most days. Although they look cute apparently they are very territorial and will aggressively defend their space.
