Robin (Erithacus rubecula)
‘Robin redbreast’ is one of the friendliest small birds in the UK. Its bright red face and breast with brown upper and white underparts is featured on many seasonal pictures such as Christmas cards. Robins often follow gardeners in the hope that a juicy worm or small caterpillar may come their way. They are even known to feed from your hand.
Robins have a beautiful sweet song and often sing well in to the night. When they are scared they make a loud ‘tic, tic’ call.
Nests are sometimes made in sheds, holes or even old pots by the busy female birds. Males will often fight for their area to warn off any other males.
