24 Dec 14 - Happy Christmas

Just a short Post to wish all the readers of the Blog a Happy Christmas. Robins are the most popular Birds on Christmas cards in the UK, so I thought I would follow that theme with a Robin photographed down under in 2001.

The great thing about bumping into New Zealand Robins which sadly aren't common due to the number of introduced predators in New Zealand, is they are very confiding. The above photo was a snapshot from this piece of video. I was experimenting with a video camera at the time & did not have a proper camera. Apologies for anybody wanting to view the following two videos on an Apple device. As Apple products are crap & won't allow Flash to run on it, then you will have to find a PC to view the videos.

They particularly like it if you turn over a patch of earth on the track, so they can look for food.
