How frustrating

I was creeping in on a tree load of scarelt robins and took one quick pic before adjusting my position -


Then just as I was about to get a better pic and closer I hear this voice "coming around" - and a jogger steams past and scare them all away!

Yes Nick, I know exactly what you mean about joggers and doggers, the toger's nemeisis !

Nice Robin shot too, not easy to get, and we haven't even had winter yet ... ?

At least you got this shot, Terry. That's a very pretty bird.

Re: How frustrating

Terry - I haven't even seen a robin in the wild yet, let alone got a photo.
I would have used another word about the jogger rather than "frustrating" !
