The European robin is a lovely little passerine bird. Its appearance is similar to a thrush but is actually considered to be in the Old World flycatcher family. An incredible singer, funny and curious, this sweet fellow greeted us on our first day in Droum Woods just outside Castletownbere. He was so busy singing he didn’t seem to mind me getting close to him to take the picture below.
