Underneath the arches

The UK's favourite bird - with its bright red breast it is familar throughout the year and especially at Christmas! Males and females look identical, and young birds have no red breast and are spotted with golden brown. Robins sing nearly all year round and despite their cute appearance, they are aggressively territorial and are quick to drive away intruders. They will sing at night next to street lights.

Yes, it is my favourite bird Nick. Last week there was one in the garden singing its little heart out! Another L&F. As always, I have enjoyed looking through your bird pictures. Keep up the good work. Best wishes, Rosa.

Erik van den Ham I couldn't understand why this little robin was so fluffed up ~ maybe it had just come back from the tailors with a new suit or perhaps had recently enjoyed a good bird bath and massage ~~~ All the best ~ nick

Hi Nick,

I really like this little round robin on his stick, enhanced by the arch of leaves and autumn colours. You are getting quite a big collection of bird pics now.

Best Wishes Peter
