They are often mistaken for nightingales, despite being one of the most common night-time singers in Britain. Nocturnal singing can be triggered by loud noises, like thunder or fireworks, a sudden shaking of the roosting tree, or by lights, such as floodlights, coming on. Various studies have shown that artificial lighting has led to an increase in the nocturnal activities of robins, with many urban robins now singing at night.
Male robins are aggressive and very vocal in defending good-quality territory, and in advertising themselves to potential mates.
But how might this be affected by robins living in the city? The robins with territories closer to lit paths and noisy roads showed less aggression to the fake robin and song, meaning they are lower down in the dominance hierarchy. The researchers concluded that artificial night-time lighting and more daytime noise resulted in robin territories that were of a lower quality.
