At first I saw only Mr Robin . He was quick as if on a mission . He proudly displayed his red chest. With short flights he flew first to the fence ; looked around and then descended onto the lawn .
“ Wait a while my dear , I will get a few leaves for our nest. “
“Yes ” replied Mrs Robin “ Yes indeed , with the winter gone , we need to hurry. “As she sat on the opposite fence below a bush all puffed up . They were soon to start their little family .
That’s the time a shot rang out . Mr Robin disappeared to safety .
There was silence for sometime. Mrs Robin seemed unconcerned on her perch amidst the bush over the fence .
Again Mr Robin flew down into the grass caught a another leaf in its beak , just in time as the second shot sounded .
This time his partner too flew off and he followed .
What were these shots …. would anyone try shooting robins ?
…….after all even the click of a camera will be loud enough for robins to fly away . Do you think they will return tomorrow ?
