The American Robin is a very rare vagrant

The American Robin  (Turdus migratorius) is a very rare vagrant from North America. In October 2008 this American Robin stayed on our garden from the 18th until the 31st. It was a very special feeling seeing this beautiful American bird  nibbling on an apple just outside our window day after day.

Seeing an American Robin is not something you can often expect here in the North Atlantic. A lot of birders visited us to see this rare vagrant.
