The evening before last, Rhiannon and I were talking and I mentioned that it would soon be time to be on the look out for Robin's eggs. In a good year we find two or three where the Robin drops them to protect the nest. Last night she say's " I saw a robin dropping an egg in the field and I am going to go look for it."
I say 'thats a great idea', thinking ....the chances are unlikely that she will be able to locate the spot of the drop. She made 3 different trips and this is what she brought in.
It makes me smile- I personally feel a special kind of lucky when I see these tiny blue treasures.
