It's a common species but when one poses so nicely for you, it seems churlish not to take a photograph. Actually, like many other woodland birds, we don't actually have as many robins as places south. This was one of perhaps six I saw today and some or all may have been migrants from Scandinavia. A sunny day, with one or two showers, so I thought I'd take advantage of the light to go through the wood of Binscarth and look for fungi, then along the track to Wasdale, and the old trucks etc at the farm which often supply subjects for photos. Today there was a new/old speedboat, and I got a shot. A little grebe was on the Ouse; a female blackcap, redwings, goldcrests and a few robins in the wood. The Loch of Wasdale had wigeon, mallard, teal, tufted duck, 121 curlew etc.
