An action capture showing the "dark side" of a Robin (Erithacus rubecula) guarding his patch against an influx of raiders the day before yesterday. I was focusing on the Robin, who was in attack mode, when the out-of-focus Blue Tit flashed past. Robins are very confrontational in this cold weather, guarding their areas very aggressively.
