What bird is this? It competes with the robins for the seed I put out.

Location is Glasgow, first half of the 21st century, midway through the great extinction

In reply to Flinticus:

Juvenile Robin. Good sign - I’d have a wager that this is a second brood. 

In reply to Flinticus:

Baby robin.  Probably not competing so much as being shown the ropes!

We're knee-deep in them. Again.  Together with baby sparrows, blackbirds, family groups of crows and, any minute, goldfinches...

Great tits nested in a Robin box I put up in April. Allows for a quickly sneaky peek  when adults not there.

Almost certainly. We noticed a lull in their pestering then it started up again!

In reply to Flinticus:

Whilst we had an iffy early spring, late spring and early summer has seen some good, insecty weather. Must be second brood of great tits coz a saw a young un ages ago. 

In reply to Flinticus:

This was 8th July. Growing quick!
