As I fed and watched the robins go back and forth and take food from right next to me I thought I'd just have another go with my hand. The male (I think), who has a slight hook on the end of his beak (he is also in the photos on the earlier post and is the friendlier of the two), fluttered a few times near my hand then as quick as a flash went down and took some suet. I was so chuffed! I tried it again and he came quicker this time. Not wanting to stress them too much I left them to it with the suet but the next day he was waiting as I got home so armed with the camera I had another go -
The babies fledged about 4 days ago and whilst the parents are not so frantically feeding they do still appear to be taking food back to the same area. I have been hand-feeding him each day and he will also now take from my daughter's hand. Such a special trust to be given.
