Description:  One morning in early autumn the lives of English naturalist Ian Woodward, FZS, and his garden-loving wife Zenka were suddenly changed. In their country garden near London they were befriended by a robin, England’s unofficial national bird. It was the start of an amazing relationship between man and bird that would provoke smiles and induce tears. It was a friendship that would arouse tenderness and stir up emotions of wonder, admiration and trust. “When bird trusts man,” says the filmmaker, “be proud.” Zenka and Ian (a Fellow of the Zoological Society of London) called the red and brown songster “Silly Robin”.
