The European Robin can be found all over Europe to Western Siberia, south to Algeria and on the Atlantic Ocean as far as the Azores and Madeira.
Robins are relatively unafraid of humans and like to come close when anyone is digging the soil, in order to look out for earthworms.
Male Robins are noted for their highly aggressive territorial behaviour. They will ruthlessly attack other males that stray into their territories, and have been observed attacking other small birds without apparent provocation.
