The Robin (erithacus rubecula)

A shot of just about everyones favourite little bird. We find them everywhere and they never cease to be appealing.
This one I got during the recent very cold weather; not using my usual 500 but hand held with a 300.
Hope you like him -- if you dont its my fault not his!!WinkWinkWink

Cant thank you all enough for the tremendous response to the Siskin. Most appreciative. Particular thanks to Lillian for the UA.

Very well done......hand held at 300mm. Indeed, everyone's favourite wee bird, hardly surprising as they are so appealing.
