24/07: FEELING SORRY FOR HIMSELF

I photographed this scruffy looking Robin in our Garden - it appears that robins have started to moult earlier this year for some reason and usually they hide themselves away till they regain tail feathers etc - not sure if they're embarrassed or just feel more vulnerable when moulting.

Obviously the sunshine drew this chap out although he was very subdued.  Lets hope they all get back to normal soon as I do miss the robins singing happily in the back and front gardens.
