Whilst having lunch in the garden the Robin enjoyed the left overs.

Robin ( Erithacus rubecula ) Length 14cm.
The Robin is a familiar red breasted Bird of gardens and woodlands. Widespread throughout mainland Britain and Ireland. Very territorial. The male and the female have similar markings with a striking orange to red face, throat and breast this is boarded by blue grey sides, the underparts are buffish brown and a faint buff wing bar. Several million pairs are present at any one time. Robins often seek out humans in hope of picking up scraps of food.

Hi Nick,

A fantastic capture! A lovely robin but the food in his beak steals the picture. Great timing.


What a lovely close-up, Nicholas. You have not only captured the lovely detail of colours, feathers and features, you have also captured his character! Well done!
Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Nick

Great close-up of the robin. I especially like the cake in his/her beak.
