Mr Self-concious Red-capped Robin moulting into winter dress

This little male has just about completed the moult.  He is showing the last of the white-sheathed new feathers.  He keeps hiding in bushes and behind branches.  It seems like he doesn’t want to display until the moult is over.  This male’s lady has already taken on her winter outfit, and he is just starting to ‘tic tic’ at her. But there are no territorial shows now.
