Robin and Goldfinch......

The Robin.
UK's favourite bird.  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 often sing at night next to street lights.

A beautifully coloured finch with a delightful liquid twittering song and call. Increasingly they are visiting garden birdtables and feeders preferring Sunflower Hearts and Nijer seed. These photos are from our nature area, a super place to see visiting birds close-up.
