Even though the pair stay together for the season, it's not uncommon for one or other partner to "have a bit on the side". Once they hatch, both parents look after the young and they fledge in another 14 days.

The robin is probably Ireland's best known and best loved bird.

The distinctive red patch on the chest has given us it's common name "Robin Redbreast".

The term 'Robin' is also applied to other (unrelated) birds with red or orange breasts, including the American Robin (a much larger thrush like bird) and the Australian Robin (which is much more closely related to the Crows). It is the red colour that triggers territorial behaviour and robins will even attack a tuft of red feathers on its own. During the 15th century it became popular to give human names to familiar species and hence the origin of Robin Redbreast, which was eventually shortened to Robin. Adult robins weigh less than an ounce (about 20 grams) and are approx. Much folklore is associated with our robin and how it acquired its redbreast.

The familiar tune about "The red, red robin goes bob, bob, bobbin' along" in fact refers to the American robin and not "our" robin. It is said that the robin helped Christ on the cross by removing the thorns from his head and that his blood splashed onto the robins breast.

Another story tells of a robin fanning a fire to keep it alight for the baby Jesus and in doing so it singed his breast.

Yet another, tells of a robin mopping up the blood spilt by the fleeing Jesus as he escapes from pursuing soldiers, thereby concealing the escape.

Webcams are extremely popular with young people and adults.

They offer the opportunity for people to chat face to face with family and friends through video calling services such as Skype and Face Time, hold video conferences with more than one person on social networking sites and even use the webcam as a barcode scanner to check the cost/trade in value of goods online.

There are a huge number of positive uses and potential for using webcams as a tool for communication.
