Great title, great thought, great image.

Oh yes so has ours Michael, I spoke to him yesterday but I first heard him a few days ago and thought like you that that the seasons are changing :). Lovely little Ronnie robin. ( that's our name for him or her:)

Thanks Lewis. Ronnie's a great name Carole. They're such an interesting little bird.

He's a little beauty Michael!

Super Michael. He looks a bit mischevious, like you.

What a cutie! Haven't seen ours yet...probably hiding in case they get ...dare I say it...shot at. This is gorgeous wet in wet stuff, love him/her!

How lovely Michael. I saw ours last week but not since, I love to watch the birds in the garden.

Thanks Margaret. I love watching them too, and any wildlife that may come to the garden. This year we've had two hedgehogs and a woodpigeon which nested in one of the trees. She produced an egg then a chick which has now flown off. For the last four or five years we've had a pied wagtail come to feed in our garden over the Winter. Arrives the end of October and leaves the middle of March each year. I'm on tenter hooks to see if it comes back next month.

By the way, the hedgehogs weren't nesting in the tree.

It's on its way even as we bask in this unexpected warmth ....

Nothing more certain Gudrun.

A delightful little bird, beautifully drawn and painted Michael.

Good watercolour, Michael.

In my place its already feels like winter. Brrr.. Lovely work!

Our Robin's returned to the garden, reminding me of Winter. Watercolour.
