European Robin - Erithacus rubecula

I went to the Forest of Dean, it was a sunny day. But, I went to Parkend Church to catch a glimmer of the Crossbill male, but it was packed full of birders, so I to the pub for a pint of Bob, ah, that was really NICE. 

Photographed at Stone Works, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, GB.

  3. Hi Bob,
    Glad to read you had a visit out and like me do not enjoy these visits when over crowded with birders.
    I think you made the correct decision and went to the pub, wonderful idea.
    Wonderful set of images of the dear Robin.
    All the best, John

    1. Yes John, I did the right thing, going to the pub. Later I went there, no birds, but, I was in the funeral.

  5. Now there's a choice, beer or a crossbill. After a couple of beers you might feel you had a crossed bill!

    1. Very funny David, but I only had 1 pint, not enough to get little drunk.

  13. You can't beat a Robin for brightening up a cold wet day, Bob, and your Robin has just done that for me - thank you!

    I can sympathise with your dilemma over the choice between crowds of birders or a relaxed pint in the pub. I'm sure you made the right choice!

    Best wishes - - - Richard
