Early this morning I spotted a male bullfinch - much excitement :clap:. A heartbeat later I realised it was a robin :rolleyes:.
Bright morning but no sun at the time but he was as bright as a button. Male courting plumage much in evidence :).

A couple of days ago I spotted him on top of the ground feeder cage with a dozy grin :P on his beak whilst inside his Intended was eating for, possibly, six ?? Good sign, anyway.

Eating for six :wow: Best get knitting now rather than wait to see what she actually produces :nod:

It appears that due to a lack of attention on my behalf that I have squatters in the ivy on the wall that runs up the side of the chateau. The rascals are a pair of Robins who must now be very close to fledging their brood. :)

:clap: Cheeky little articles, robins :D.
Have they displaced the blackbirds or are they neighbours ?? I mean, just how many walls does your chateau have :eek: ??

They are currently quite close neighbours but I have witnessed no friction thus far.
Two walls. One longish side wall. One shortish front wall.

It would appear that my nest of Robins have fledged. I have seen no sign of the occupants or the parents today.
No rent either :( ...............aaahh well :)
I have discovered there is another nest adjacent to the chateau. They are in some ivy on the back of some lock-up garages belonging the the local housing association so dodging rent yet again.
