Red in the blue (European Robin)
I heard a Robin singing and eventually found him at the top of a tree outside my window. He stopped singing when I was photographing him though, guess he was just having a good look around.

They do sing year 'round - females as well as males. I've been seeing one in the abandoned garden by the campus, but s/he's a skulker, always deep in cover, so no clear shots yet :(
 
What a charming Robin portrait, Delia! All ours seem to have left us. A few usually stay during the winter though so I haven't given up hope.
