Question ID please - Somerset, UK

Can anyone ID this bird for me please? It was hopping about on the bank of a fast flowing stream, near Porlock in West Somerset. A little larger and rounder than a robin.

Thank you.

I think you've got yourself a juvenile Robin there.

A recently fledged Robin. Probably bigger due to being overfed!!! :)
