Note the distinctive bright red breast with bluish-grey edging and the birds dark black eye, the Robin is an unmistakable bird.
Bluish-grey fringe to red breast
Juvenile Robins can cause some confusion, they lack any sign of a red breast and the head and breast can appear quite spotted with light buff feathers.
Close up of a Robin
Distribution: Common resident breeder in most of Europe including the UK. Absent from Iceland and is a summer visitor to Northern Europe.
Habitat: A bird of woodland, gardens, parks and hedgerows.
Notes: The Robin needs little introduction and is considered by most to be Britain's favorite bird, possibly due in some part to the Robins willingness to accept human presence in close proximity and often becoming very tame following gardeners for tidbits.
