And a bit more Bobbit

Bobbit and I share an interest.


Worms.

But they are not his absolute favourite.


No. He loves the things he sees on the fence, creeping in the ivy.


In this video, I managed a neat slomo of him catching one. When he was very young, I'd see him do this but he'd sort of crash into the fence. I thought he might have neurological issues. Instead, it was just a matter of developing his accuracy.


Later in the film, I scrape up some leaves - with the robin watching on intently. He finds very small worms in the leaf litter.


On another note, literally, when I was feeding this morning I heard a blackbird subsinging in the bush under the front lilac. There was another in the canopy of the back lilac. It was wonderful to hear them - though they are so quiet.


The previous day - when I had fed Bobbit by hand - a male and a female blackbird were in a bush under the honeysuckle. Silently watching.

Catchy sentence about "sharing an interest". Sharp close-up earthworm-wiggling in the first video!
