Little Red Robin


Every time I turn over a clod in the garden I have a little red and blue army of watchers appear. The red robin's pose nicely on any available post, raspberry cane, fence, branch. While the blue wrens tend to hide becomingly behind clumps of grass and scrutinise every lump of earth. The moment I walk away they dive in and help themselves to a squirming worm dinner.

Every time I see photos of robins, I think of the red robin in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe who led the children out of the wreckage of Mr Tumnus' house.

They're such beautiful little birds - I think you're lucky to have some on your property.
