The Robin is one of the most popular birds in Britain, in every sense, it is a friendly bird that can be tamed to feed from the hand, and it is particularly fond of mealworms, we have a special mix (Robin and Tit food) containing all the seeds, nuts, and mealworms Robins love to eat. Robins generally prefer to cling on to the side of a bird feeder, (our window feeder is a great way to see Robins and Tits close up)  but will also try to perch on a hanging bird feeder, often flapping their wings frantically to gain balance.

The Robin is the gardener’s friend. He will keep the bugs and caterpillars off, as well as keeping you company, when digging the veg plot, often within a foot or so of the spade. Robins are the only garden birds to sing throughout the winter, with both males and females holding winter territories.

Beside all that, the Robin is the Nations favourite; he appears on Christmas cards and fairy tales. Yet he is also one of the most fearsome of territorial defenders. Often fighting fellow Robins to the death over his territory.
