This coming Spring …… A New Snifty Sleuth Mystery will begin ………..

There has been a murder, a terrible Murder …. and it’s down to YOU to help solve the Whodunnit!!

A BRAND New Challenge begins soon
Once again, l have had some nice walks this week mostly around the town, but also slightly further afield over near Sandown Lees and also, Suze joined me for a walk in the nature reserve on Tuesday and we chanced upon what l think is a Red Crested Pochard … l think.

I am no expert with regards ducks … but l also had a very friendly red breasted robin take to a branch with deliberation on one walk and sat there whilst l took photos and talked to her/him …. literally only 6″ away from my camera and very happily posing..

This little robin l think is a regular on this part of the walk along the River Stour, l am always seeing a robin – l know there is a slight difference between the male and the female. The males are slightly larger – and yet on some occasions, females are also larger than the males. Some studies say the male’s breast is brighter than that of the females.

Many people wrongly believe that female robins have no red breast – but they do have red breasts too. An article l read last year suggested that the peak cap on the head of the birds themselves are slightly different as in females are more of a V shape in comparison to the male’s which is more of a U shape, but that is only really seen if looking down upon them. In truth, l care not, l lam very fond of the species and l have a pair in my garden so even more special.

This little one was on the path when l first approached and then took to the branches and when l stopped and took my first photo, they made a slight noise and alighted to the branch directly in front of me and delighted me further with the poses.

Have a TOTALLY fantastic day Folks!!

  1. Hope you’re having a good day my friend. These photos are lovely. It seems the walks are now sunny and pleasant. Love the bird life.

    1. Hey MaSadje, good morning to you 🙂

      Happy saturday too.

      Currently the weather is in a form of limbo, it’s seriously windy , sunny and wet hahaha then, yes then it’s not!!

      Just off for my morning wobbly windy jaunt.

  2. Happy SaturnDay JB! I love your photos! I actually took a picture very similar to your #3, but mine had cement banks cuz it was a storm drain “river”.

    We don’t have robins here. But another reader in Wales said you guys don’t have hummingbirds?? That would be really sad!! ☹

    I hope SaturnDay is being a ringing good day!💃🏼🪐🌠


        1. I remember you saying. Mind you l am yet to capture an image of a Kingfisher here and they are supposedly on that nature reserve l saw the red headed duck on.

        2. Mostly I see crows, crows, and more crows. Gulls, occasionally Parrots, Mourning Doves, and little birds.. finches, sparrows the black Phoebe.
          We have mockingbirds but I haven’t seen one in a while. I haven’t seen a red tail hawk in a while either and they’re pretty common.
          Kingfisher would be cool!

  3. You made me smile with Talking Heads – And she was lol ❤️❤️❤️ I love that song ❤️

    Ps… I also always loved Rockin Robin lol ❤️😄✌️

      1. Yes it is going well. It was good to enjoy some respite because next 2 weeks will turn my stomach but that’s ok, am used to. Almost done. Whew

        But doing ok. Knock on wood ✌️ life can change daily so we see 🙏 lol

        How are you doing? How’s springtime going over there – loved your Robin ❤️ we have bird watcher groups out here 😊 they used to come to the golf course

        I always loved beach birds the most?? Not sure why?? All of them are beautiful ❤️

        How is your Saturday?

  4. Beautiful photos Rory 🙂 I have to ask, you say you have a pair in your garden. Please clarify if these are a pair a red breasts or a pair of red-breasted robins. More to the point, do you tend to them 🙂
