The Robin ~ The Nation’s Favourite Little Bird ~ #Nature #Robin #Photography #GardenBirds

A surprising fact (at least to me) is that the association with Christmas began with Victorian postmen who were known as Robin Redbreasts because their uniform included red waistcoats, and are thought to be the inspiration for robins appearing on Christmas cards.

Robins are likely to stay around the nesting area where they hatched. I hope that’s true as there are some of the next generation in the garden.
