Ages ago, we got a transparent bird feeder that attaches to a window with suckers. When birds come to have some lunch, we can see them. It’s nice.
Lately I’ve been on a quest to get a picture of one of them and it’s harder than you think. If you move too much, they dart away, so you can’t just grab your phone and walk over. And if you’re not up close, they’ll be too small in a picture anyway.
Anyway, the other day I left my phone propped up by the window and set it recording, and then just left it for about 45 minutes. The downside was that, half an hour later, I spent some time swearing copiously and scouring the flat for a phone I thought I’d stupidly lost. The upside was that (once I remembered I hadn’t lost it and had deliberately left it recording) I found that I’d captured our robin friend paying a visit.
So here’s the video of our robin. It’s not very funny or silly but I think it’s pretty cool. I like him. I’m glad he enjoys dining with us.

I believe this wins the prize for most wholesome video and post of this year. Anything with birds always wins.
Thanks mate. I’m getting to be a bit of a fan of the birds.
Well, we did always wonder if perhaps you were pecking for the other side.
Did you wonder feather or not it was true?
Now it’s time for you to get your coat.
In fact, just leave it. You don’t deserve a coat.

I never like that coat anyway…
