Robin Murder

Robins are not always the cheery little birds we enjoy seeing in the garden

While doing a BTO survey this morning, I came across a moving bundle of feathers on the muddy path.  I managed to get out my camera and took some shots before the combatants saw me and separated.  I think it might have ended in a Robin murder had I not appeared on the scene.  They seemed equally matched and were using their feet mainly as weapons.
