Take some mealworms when you go. You'll have her eating out of your hand in a couple of weeks. :)

What variety is she?  Looks like a brave little thing.

Never mind.  Still getting used to the new tagging on the site.

Have you seen the male at all? He will usually feed her while she is on the nest.

They are both around but I haven't seen any feeding going on. She's still sitting on eggs.

The pair in the garden have hatched young as they are constantly back and forth with grubs and bugs. The nest is only a few feet from the door and they get quite agitated whenever I go out there. :)

awwww bless we have resident robins nesting near our patio door as we have a clematus which offers sufficent protection :)
Always makes me laugh in Spring/Summer seeing fledglings learning to fly from our neighbours roof as they fly but crash into branches.

Sadly, we yesterday discovered the nest abandoned. Three dead chicks. :(
