Good morning all   We've just had our first night over 10C   and its raining and raining and raining - hopefully the pond will begin to fill up.  Mind you, the rain doesn't seem to put the robin off - he was waiting under the table on the terrace for me to appear with the mealworms this morning.

Help to identify please.
