We’re at a nature reserve in Italy, a WWF Oasi called the Lago di Alviano. There are European Robins here and they’re just as characterful as the ones I’m familiar with in the UK:

They are alive to every danger, any hint of food and any threat from another Robin in their territory.

They are also supremely cute:

This small spot in the forest sounds just like a Paris catwalk with shutters firing like machine guns. It’s the latest fashion.
