Yours are very shy Lis. The ones we get here are extremely tame.

Continental Robins are shy forest dwellers. Ours have learnt to come into gardens for free feeds. lol When we get an influx of Robins from the continent, they are always shy & secretive.

Strange. There are most likely also much fewer here. They are not so common, at least not where I live.

Interesting indeed! And it explains why the robin I saw up in the Scottish Highlands didn't fly off but patiently waited to be photographed. lol
