Flyer to take from home (5)


I believe the answer is:


'flyer' is the definition.
(type of bird)

'take from home' is the wordplay.
'take from' becomes 'rob' (to rob someone is to take things from them).
'home' becomes 'in' ('he's home' can mean 'he's in').

'to' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for robin that I've seen before include "Christmas songbird" , "Small brown thrush" , "Friendly winter bird" , "Popular British bird" , "Batman's companion" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
