We call him Christopher. Christopher Robin.

My beautiful little writing partner. This morning he chirped to me from the trees. I chirped back. After two minutes of this off-line twittering, he flew in for a personal appearance. This time I was ready for him.



This little robin started coming to visit me at the windows outside my computer desk over one year ago. I first photographed him in November 2009, and took this shot today, 3 November 2010. I don’t know why he comes; I don’t feed him because there are a lot of cats about and I don’t want to put him at risk. But come he does, and if I’m not at the computer he taps at the window until I come and chirp back at him. He doesn’t come every day, but on days he does, he comes three or four times. My little robin.
