Robin (Erithacus rubecula). Words and picture by Matt Sewell.
Not just for Christmas, the Robin sings his song all year round, and what a plethora of numbers these gusty red-breasted folk know: carols, aggressive fast numbers, golden oldies and ballads as soft as snow. The Robin’s greatest hits are a treasured possession in many a garden and park.
Matt Sewell bird books, badges and 2103 calendars are now on sale from the Caught by the River shop.
