Our resident robin sits on an obelisk which has a feeder hanging inside it. He furiously defends it, while yelling at anything that comes near him, but seems quite oblivious to the fact the blue and coal tits just go round the other side and munch away behind his back! There are several other feeders about, but that particular one he thinks is his property. He and his mate (I am assuming the aggressive one is the male from what I have read), usually nest in a certain patch of ivy on a fence near the top of the garden, and if i go near there he comes and sits on a pot and grumbles at me, maybe he thinks I am going to cut down the ivy - which I will, but only after he has done with it.
