Robin (Erithacus rubecula)

The Long-tailed Tits chaotically descended on the garden for a few minutes (they always noisily announce their arrival with a choral 'chuck-chuck') and I managed to capture no decent shots. Then, as I was cursing my luck, this beautiful Robin loitered obligingly on the bird table for just long enough to get a nice study.
