The Robin (erathacus rubeculla)
The gardeners favourite; in fact almost everyones favourite.GrinGrin A lovely little bird with the famous red breast seen everywhere from gardens to forests. Gentle and mild mannered-- except when guarding his own territory when he will often fight to the death.
Hope you like him.
As always, appreciate and grateful thanks for the generous thought on the Little Grebe. Particular thanks to Steve ( Sparrowhawk) for his UA.
