How adorable are robins? Fairly adorable, it would seem as they repeatedly top polls of Britain’s favourite bird. Robins are around all year but would seem to have become especially associated with Christmas because Victorian postmen wore red jackets and were nicknamed after the birds. Remarkably unafraid of people, robins will happily perch nearby and watch you dig your garden, then swoop in to help themselves to any worms and insects that have been unearthed. At this time of year they’ll gladly tuck into any bird seed you put out for them, but make sure to do so in a place safe from cats!
How many of the different robins in the picture can you identify?
