Good grief! I'll bet that deadweight needs a long runway to get off the ground.

Cracking photo David.

Nice shot. Robins don't seem as common as they used to be, more so in gardens. Around Dec I did see an unusual visitor to my garden, which I initially thought was either a Kestrel or Peregrine, but I think it was more likely a Sparrowhawk (had a yellow ring round its eyes). Still an unusual sight though.

I wonder what it's thinking with that expression on it's face.

Not weight simply fluffing feathers for more insulation against the cold.

Agree with all of the above! I love to see a picture of an English robin, as I've said many times before!

What a lovely bird and a great photo.

Comment by: David on 29th January 2017 at 20:57

Thank you. This was not a shy robin, he came closer as I stopped to take a photo. Perhaps he is used to someone feeding him.

I don't think I have seen a Robin more cute than this one ! He really is a Robin with attitude!
