Whilst busy capturing innocent images of Robin's this rather forlorn creature appeared. At first I thought that he had very unique plumage but only upon taking a second look did I realise that nearly every other feather seemed to be missing. Robin's are known to be extremely territorial and will fight to the death. The fact that he was alive at all was really something.
This was taken in mid December and we were still to yet to experience the harsh winter that was to ensue. I think it likely that he didn't survive.
