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…

The eggs in the nest

The mum keeping the eggs warm

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 :-)
