Wildlife Diary -December - The Robin

For December's Wildlife Diary I had to chose the Robin of course. The Robin symbolises Christmas and appears on Christmas cards in various jolly poses. These usually include a line of robins all sitting happily together on a wire or fence.
In real life this would never happen. Robins are fiercely territorial and will fight with incomers. Males and females look the same but it's the males who fight most. Although you think of your 'own garden robin' in actual fact our robins are partial migrants. So when you are chatting to your robin, it may or may not be the same one you saw last week!
