European Robin (Erithacus rubecula)

The UK’s favourite bird – with its bright red breast- is familiar throughout the year, especially at Christmas! Males and females look identical; 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.

What they eat: Worms, seeds, fruits, insects and other invertebrates.

Seen in the gardens of Chiswick House in November 2020
