Bird Brain?


Empty feeder Wm


A strange noise..

Loud. Coming from the kitchen. Something rattling against the window?

The feeder is attached to the glass on the outside of the pane. You can see that it’s empty, but for the few grains of seed trapped on the external ridge at the back. A robin had been standing right inside the box, hammering its beak hard against the perspex, in an effort to get at the unreachable seed.


Filled feeder Wm


Best refill it. It wouldn’t be nice for the bird to get a bent beak now would it.

We attached a remote cable to the camera and left it in place, thinking that it might be a while before the robin returned.

About ten seconds later the shoot was a wrap.
