The friendly robin

Every garden has one - a robin that stalks you whenever you're digging soil or raking leaves, its sharp eyes ready to spot the faintest wiggle of a worm or the scurrying of a bug. Today, this one sat on a twig watching as I picked apples. I put out some morsels from a bag of 'robin food' and after eyeing it for a short time, it flew down and helped itself.
