I believe I’ve had a white robin in my garden for the last to days
how rare are they
Hi WM welcome to the community from Sheffield. They are pretty rare though we get a few every year on here, there are two causes for this, 1 it's an Albino which will have pink eyes or 2 it has a condition called Leucism which means it loses partial pigmentation in its feathers. Can you get a photo of it? sometimes a Dunnock with the same condition can look the same as a Robin, but the Robin will have more of a upright stance.
