That is a good number to have Peregrine. Were they behaving.

I am wondering if the very cold weather has made them forgo the usual territorial wars and let each other get a feed if possible.

Two appear to get on well together, the third is tolerated and the forth is bossy and chases anything it sees, even Sparrows.

I happened to pop out into the back garden tonight about 6.30. It was almost dark, windy with spits of rain and my Robin was singing his heart out in the top of the Rowan tree. My only hope is that there was a lonely female lurking nearby so his efforts weren't wasted. :)

Have a pair of Robins courting in the garden. First time I have ever seen the part of courtship where the male feeds the female. Couldn't get a photo as they didn't stay still long enough.

Unless you see two Robins in the garden at the same time, it could be two different birds like these ones.
