The European robin is known for its distinctive red breast and until the 20th century, was known as ‘the redbreast’. To this day they are still affectionately called robin redbreast. Every robin has a unique breast pattern. The robin has been Britain’s National Bird since the 15th of December 1960. The first British postmen were nicknamed robin or redbreast because they wore red coats. Robin pairs can raise as many as 5 broods of chicks a year. Robins are omnivorous eating insects as well as fruits and nuts. The robin is said by the Norse to be a storm-cloud bird sacred to Thor. If anyone should harm a robin or its nest Thor will strike them down with a bolt of lightning.
