As Britain’s national bird, the Robin is a much-loved part of our garden wildlife here in the UK. That’s why when you spot a Robin in your garden, it can leave you wondering if it’s a male or female.
If you do spot two Robins together in your garden, it’s likely to be a male and female. This is because Robins are known for being fiercely territorial so are unlikely to be seen with other, same gendered Robins.
Whilst statistically you’re more likely to see male Robins than females, this is not definitive. Both are present all year round here in the UK, however males have a slightly larger population. Read on for more information on their similarities and differences.
