Our latest Picture of the Week was sent in by Jaclyn Thorpe of a gorgeous robin puffing its chest out on a cold autumnal morning beside a river in Dumbarton and the Vale.

The red-breasted birds start to make an appearance in the winter months – in real life as well as on a million Christmas cards.

If you would like your picture to be considered for publication in a future edition of the Reporter, please send it to editorial@dumbartonreporter.co.uk or via Facebook or Twitter with brief details of when, where and by whom the picture was taken. Happy snapping!
