    Original pastel drawing 'Robins'
    ______________________________________

    The European robin (Erithacus rubecula), most commonly known in Anglophone Europe simply as the robin, is a small insectivorous passerine bird.

    The robin features prominently in British folklore, and that of northwestern France, but much less so in other parts of Europe. It was held to be a storm-cloud bird and sacred to Thor, the god of thunder, in Norse mythology. Robins feature in the traditional children's tale, Babes in the Wood; the birds cover the dead bodies of the children.

    In the 1960s, in a vote publicised by The Times, the robin was adopted as the unofficial national bird of the UK. The robin was then used as a symbol of a Bird Protection Society. Several English and Welsh sports organisations are nicknamed 'The Robins'. These include the professional football clubs Bristol City, Swindon Town, Cheltenham Town.
    A small bird is an unusual choice, although it is thought to symbolise agility in darting around the field.
