The Robin


For weeks now I have been trying to get a decent photo of the Cape Robin who thinks he owns our garden, but he’s super quick.  He never stays in one spot for long, and by the time you get the camera he’s gone.  But today I caught him.  On camera that is.

He’s officially known as Cape Robin-Chat (Cossypha caffra) and he’s actually quite cheeky.

It was a fabulous summer day and he must have been feeling the heat because I even managed to snap him having a bath.  I know the quality of these pics isn’t great but I have waited so long for this I feel like I’ve climbed a mountain!

Looks like he’s checking his toes to make sure they’re clean! 🙂
