Habitat
Woodland of various kinds, usually deciduous or mixed but purely coniferous in some areas. Found in lower branches of trees and in bushes and shrubs, usually feeding on the ground. Common in parks and gardens, especially in Britain, also hedgerows and road verges but avoids most open spaces, except maybe on migration. May enter buildings in very harsh weather (Opus)

A charming portrait of this colourful robin, John.
 
They're really on form 'round here at the moment, Jonno, in a rural area. 'Singing at all times of the day/night and chasing one another around. 'Reckon they're beginning to think about pairing up.
