My eagle-eyed wife spotted "something unusual" out of the bedroom window this morning, and a brief burst on the binos confirmed the visitor as a female Rose Robin, with a distinct rose-coloured fringe across the top of her breast and demonstrating the familiar droopy-wing syndrome. This is almost exactly a year since our last visit by a female RR, but last year's bird had no colour on the breast at all. I wonder if it could still be the same bird...
