Soldiers and A Young Robin

An annual visitor, the soldier beetles are on site. They arrived a bit later and in fewer numbers than in previous years, but they're busy trying to make up those numbers.. As usual!
This young robin was hopping on and off the fence to find grubs and spiders, but was oblivious to the fact that we had put a pile of mealworms on the post right beside him! We'd even soaked them in water to make them easier to pick up! Tut, well, the magpies will enjoy them!
