Weird facts about robins
Robin skins became popular decoration for ladies’ hats during the late 19th Century.
In the mid 19th Century, the first British postmen wore red coats, and so were nicknamed robin.
Again in the 19th Century, attempts were made to introduce robins to Australia and New Zealand but they all failed.
If judged by ring-returns, the most frequent cause of a robin’s death is apparently being killed by a cat.
Each robin has a unique breast pattern, from which it can be individually identified.
