Welcome to our back garden in North Oxfordshire...and meet our feathered visitors!

Let me introduce you to "Batman", our resident robin. For my American readers, he is a so-called European Robin.

I took the following series of photos last autumn, out of our kitchen window. Batman was one of the few garden birds that we saw all through the winter as well. I now understand why the robin is featured on so many Christmas cards in England.

Batman was one of the first birds to take a bath in the little drinking/bathing bowl just behind our house.

I was wondering if Batman would make an appearance here!
