    • The European Robin is one of the most popular birds over here! They’re often known as the gardeners friend as they will sit close by when you’re digging the earth so that they can swoop in for grubs and worms. I think the American robin was so named because it also has a red breast. There’s a rather infamous scene in the film Mary Poppins, which is set in London, when a model of the American robin is used instead of our native species!
