What is #NationalRobinDay?

National Robin Day is an annual nationwide event raising awareness of small birds and other wildlife in winter and how you can help them through this tough time of year.

NRD Invite a Robin to Tea

On Thursday 21st December, National Robin Day will bring people together, inspiring them to take action for wildlife. Ruby Robin is the star of National Robin Day.  

As the nation’s favourite bird, robins symbolize the festivities of Christmas time. The cold winter months are especially tough for animals; as temperatures drop and food becomes scarce, wildlife such as garden birds need a little extra help. This is where you come in!

Whether it’s building a bird feeder, making a wildlife-friendly space in your garden, or holding a fundraising event, every small action goes a long way to helping Ruby Robin and her friends.

Why should I join in?

Nature brings us all huge benefits. From the beautiful birdsong we hear when we wake up in the morning, to the trees which clean the air we breathe, the wonders of nature are all around us. But sometimes we take these for granted.

NRD Robin Facts

Our wildlife is suffering. The numbers of some types of garden bird, such as tree sparrows, have gone down by a scary 96% over the last 40 years. What would Christmas be without our national bird, the robin?

National Robin Day was born to inspire collective action to help save our garden birds. By joining in with National Robin Day, you can join with thousands of bird lovers across the UK to celebrate Britain’s favourite bird and help protect our wildlife for future generations.

Share a little joy this Christmas.  Every bird feeder made and every penny raised will help save Ruby Robin and her friends.NRD Ruby Robin Holly
