Erithacus Rubecula

Erithacus rubecula | Botanical Gardens Sheffield | 17 November 2017 | © Postcard Cafe | SP1030811E

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.

    1. Thank you.
      This Robin was eating berries from the tree which features in the blog post which follows this one. My camera wasn’t set to burst mode and this was the only shot I managed to get. Although it was very much a grab shot I also tried to keep the composition in check. I have cropped just a little from the bottom and left of the image but otherwise it is pretty much as taken.
      I think I stuck lucky 🙂
