I have been having an affair – one that I have failed to keep that secret – but following on from the instruction I received in the art of robin-taming (see Robin chapter in The Beauty in the Beast) I managed to get the robin in my garden to feed from my hand, which has lead me to wonder whether hedgehogs are really the be-all and end-all of life … And because I was not sure people would believe me, I started to take photographs … and to write articles.

and then I started to get my family, friends and their children in on the act.

Most recently I have seen the robin (both sexes look the same) feeding a fledgeling – making me feel very happy and almost like a granddad!

One thought on “Robin
