The Red Red Robin Comes Bob Bob Bobbin' Along

The humble Robin is one of our most colourful, most commonly found and most friendly birds. They will happily sit next to us at picnic tables, even eat from our hands. So I was looking for a picture of a robin for the latest ADAPS forum competition, and found quite a few, and here they are. Well, some of them at least as there are quite a few to choose from. It's worth saying that there were no particularly fancy lenses needed as the robin is not an overly shy bird.

Last year I was sitting in the shelter at Studland, Dorset taking photos of a Robin which was going from perch to perch, then it suddenly flew down and sat (stood) right next to me, about 3" from my leg. I was not feeding the birds, it sat there for about twenty seconds then went off & posed again. They do like people!
