Back in Sussex: Robins have established their territories by now but the males will still sing from key look-out points, to keep the territory held and keep rivals at bay. This one was also displaying by flicking its wings and tail, and fluffing its body up. Conditions: A gloomy day with a cold breeze and rain. Temperature: Max 8- Min 3c.
