What a cracking shot, perfect composition. The Robin nice & sharp while the background is well out of focus. This is the difference in a photograph & a point & shoot. Cracking shot well done Ron

Hello Harry. Happy New Year to you as well! We've not heard from you lately with your little pleasantries. We all know you're a nice man really, so why pretend otherwise Harry?
It's a great photo by the way!

Dirty Harry, why on earth do you not believe its in Wigan...Ron says so...

Ron; DH isn`t calling you a liar. He knows you`ve taken it but his point is that it could be taken anywhere.

Simply........ Christmas

After all these comments about 'Christmas', 'time of the year', 'season' etc, etc. The Robin is an ALL YEAR ROUND bird and very rarely strays more than 100 yards from where it was born, we dont see it at other times of the year because we dont expect it and dont look for it. Less foliage in winter therefore more easily seen.
