Robin's song

One bird that you will hear singing right through the year is the robin.  You will probably recognise the bird when you see it, but you are more likely to hear it.  Try this excellent video from 'TelsWeb', which I found on youtube.
As well as the sweet fluty song you may hear a 'tik tik tik' call from somewhere in the bushes.  This is what is usually referred to as the alarm call.  It means the robin is feeling cross or frightened.  If a magpie or squirrel or cat is around the robin may sound off.  Have you heard this?  The link below is from 'Shirls gardenwatch'.  So thank you Shirl  - and Tel.
