Just a little picture of a Robin (Erithacus rubecula) that I took yesterday whilst out walking the dog.

Robin (Erithacus rubecula) 
He was a really feisty little fellow, as Robins generally are. He was sitting in a tree about five feet from me and the dog looking totally unconcerned by our presence, as if he didn't mind us being there at all. In reality he was probably thinking about how to get us off his patch, Robins are really territorial creatures and the males will defend their territory against all comers with no sign of fear and an enviable tenacity. This little chap followed us for four or five yards along the hedgerow before he was satisfied that we were leaving then went back to his perch to keep an eye out for the next intruders.

Bye for now,
