Almost certainly you have two different robins here. They are very common and an enormously territorial bird so would not dream of entering another’s area. Incursions are likely to lead to violence, even death. Have a look here www.ispot.org.uk/node/135451 for some great action shots that illustrate the point.
Typical territory size at this time of year would be about half a hectare, which is about six to a football pitch so you really don’t have to walk far to cross several boundaries.
Many thanks indeed for this interesting information Ray. What amazing photos of the robins fighting!
