Baby Robin

Whilst out walking passed Neyland Yacht Marina, Pembrokeshire I noticed that the local authorities have created a new nature reserve. The old railway line has been turned into a cycle track etc. I have to admit I haven't seen so many robins in all my life. The place was full of them. Had a few shots of the young ones but could never quite catch the mother feeding a baby robin on camera. The baby robins look so different from the adults as they do not have the distinguishing red breast. They are very speckled and look so sad with the down-turned edges to the mouth. They often appear bigger than the adults. Love the fluffy bits which look like ears!
