Ours has started begging at the front door again occasionally. It will probably become more of a regular visitor as the weather gets colder. We give it mealworms in suet. If I am working down the garden I am usually attended by a robin, but not sure if it is the same one; I don't think it is.

we had brunch, he is considering that a worm in the hand might be a rather good diplomatic move ( free worms for ever if i play tame ) or the man might be a sometimes fisherman and have a rather dodgy intention with "free worms".

using a small dish is a good tactic , snack in dish ... snack in dish in hand....snack in hand .

we haven’t quite got to that stage yet but he came to me today rather than we just met.

I was down at the allotment this weekend turning another bed. Lots of worms coming up and I was hoping a I would a visit from a robin but it didn't happen. There must be none down and around there.

We are not getting regular visits by the robins yet; just when they fancy, so perhaps they have other food to eat and aren't too reliant on us yet.

when digging etc there will be a birdy watching. establish contact and offer snacks in a more polite manner than the maitre'd of a 3*
great fun

dik likes woodlice , i think they taste horrible but i spose like most birds he would not notice chilli and i rather like it .
