February photos from Martin Thorne

Along with a Raven and a lovely portrait of a Robin, below are record shots of the scarcer birds Martin Thorne was able to capture during his stay on Lundy in February. Of the Robin, Martin says: "The Robin was at Quarry pond, a character to say the least; he's very bold, demands food and unbelievably I was feeding the fish and he flew out to pick up a large piece of bread from off the water."
