The robin (pictured above in Rusheen Bay park in Galway) wasn’t paying too much attention to me. It was chirping forcefully at another robin nearby that had the temerity to occupy the same territory. Getting close to a robin isn’t such a big deal – there’s one that follows me around my own garden. However, the European Robin is a much rarer sight in China, as this video below demonstrates.
The scene at the site of the EUROPEAN ROBIN in the grounds of the Beijing Zoo this morning. Play with sound for full effect. Please be reassured I took this video from a public path. pic.twitter.com/gFGBsp7Oia
