Some of you will know that I’ve been following the progress of these little robins since I spotted the eggs in a nest in our garden shed. And I’ve been stalking them since, much to the bemusement of their mum who I keep disturbing… They are now at the stage that they ask for food whenever they hear any noise which they think might be bringing food…

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.

    This is a great series George! Can’t wait to see what comes next. :)

  • Ohhh I don’t know if there will be more. I’d like to catch a chic as they are starting to learn to fly, or get one with the mum feeding them, but I don’t think I have the patience… :-)

    such a artful series George! well done my friend!

  • Many thanks John – the birds have been very accommodating… And the fact that the nest is at eye level rather than up a tree, also helps :-)
