The filming of Christopher the young robin came about purely by chance. Taking to the canal side walks of Hyde and feeding the sunbathing carp we soon had the interest our new friend. Naturally at first he was cautious but clearly friendlier than was to be expected.
So after a session or two of the young bird picking off the scraps falling to the floor the question had to be asked, would the robin feed from the palms of our hands? 15 minutes later we had our answer. Don’t get me wrong it was a very patient 15 minutes but with Christopher’s eyes not leaving the food we held to him we knew it was only a matter of time.
