The robin redbreast or — is probably the most popular bird and well known bird in the United Kingdom. If you were to create a birding top trumps, I think it would be one of the ace cards. The robin has a number of things going for him:- he has attractive looks thanks to his plump little figure and red breast, he is pleasantly gregarious with his nice, melodic birdsong and he has a friendly nature: i.e he doesn’t getting up close and personal with you. He also attracts great PR, being the go-to bird for festive imagery when Christmas arrives. Little robin redbreast looks great in any winter scene you care to place him be it with snow, holly, ivy, mince pies or any other Xmassy prop. Come winter, these images have and done will continue to adorn millions of Christmas cards and posters across the UK for many years.
