Perky Resounding Melodious Robin Red Breast – Crowned In 1960 –
‘Britain’s National Songbird.’
Endearing inquisitive ‘our’ friendly sociable darling little Christmas favourite.
Male and female sing identical round the clock melodious powerful sweet warbling songs to declare their area.
Stopping only when rearing their chicks. – 2012 April 23.
Help Robins: Slim tiny bills need beetles bugs flies berries smaller seeds well chopped up meats and nuts.
Spring Summer – They need protein rich mealworms for their chicks.
“One Of Our Best Loved Songbirds Who Sing Almost Throughout The Year.”
William Wordsworth 1770–1850 -
“Art thou the bird whom Man loves best, The pious bird with the scarlet breast, Our little English Robin,
The bird that comes about our doors, – When Autumn winds are sobbing.”
“Although we love the sound of birdsong if were lucky enough to experience it. It’s such a risky activity for all of our garden songbirds as they have just far too many ‘killing’ predators.”
By singing they are attracting attention to themselves. Vocalization though has other functions which (did once) outweigh the risks.

Sparrowhawks – ‘A breeding pair requires 55 kg of our Garden Songbirds per year to live on and to rear their young.’
This 55 kg breaks down to approx – 2,200 Sparrow sized birds, or – 600 birds of the – Blackbird-thrush size, or – 110 size of wood pigeon.
“In ‘2004’ – Multiply This By The Only Known Number Of breeding Pairs – And We Have The Incredible Figure of 94,600,000 Sparrows, Or 25,800,000 Blackbirds, Or 4,730,000 pigeon sized birds.”
“But, Sparrowhawks mostly do not bother to kill and eat wood-pigeon or even pigeons.” Too many spiky feathers. They Are Not The Soft and Feather-down ‘Songbirds.’ Which they just want to (just) Kill – ‘For ‘Killings’ Sake…’
The – ‘Royal Society Protection of Birds’ – Really…? But then they only ‘save’ Hawk type ‘birds.’ Don’t they.
The Charter Of the RSPB Claims The Object Of the Society Is – “To Maintain Bird Numbers, Diversity And National Geographical Distribution.”

Winter Feeding: “Putting out food in your garden in the winter months may be literally the difference between life and death for garden songbirds.” Bread is better than nothing. ‘But seed mixes fat balls peanuts provide a higher energy diet to keep them alive in cold winter months.’
“Make sure that your seeds peanuts come from a reliable source as some harbour infectious fungi toxins which harms and can kill all our Garden Songbirds.”
‘Supply water as well its essential to Songbirds for they must drink and bathe.’ Use a good sized bird-bath or an upturned dustbin lid supported on bricks.
When did you last see the much-loved Robin? There was a time when Britain’s gardens and hedgerows were over flowing with the sight and sound of the – Nation’s Songbirds But – ‘Calamitously This Is No Longer The Case.’ –
“The Blame Lies With the R.S.P.B – And With Their Consent – ‘All’ The Assaulting Predators and Scavenger Killing Pests.”
Robin - ‘Lifting Our Spirit On Even The Darkest Of Winter Days.’
And in summer their unmistakable red breast considerably bright colouring makes us all feel better.
‘The Robin has always been associated with British and western life – legends abound over the blood of Christ on the cross dripping onto the lamenting Robin.’
But the simple truth is that Britain would simply not be the same place without the jocular, cheeky little Robin, perhaps a symbol of our true nature.
Alfred A Montapert - “Animals are reliable many full of love true in their affections predictable in their actions grateful and loyal.
Difficult standards for people to live up to.”
SO – Whats ‘New’ About The LOSS? Of ‘ALL’ OUR – British Garden Songbirds?
“Who Exactly IS Doing Anything?” – So, Then Ask - ‘Where are the RSPB…?’
