On 21st December, Ruby Robin, the hero of National Robin Day, brings people together, inspiring everyone to take action for wildlife, and showing how simple steps can help our wildlife through this difficult time of year.
Ruby Robin represents all our struggling garden birds in the UK who need our help. The cold winter months are especially tough; as temperatures drop and food becomes scarce our wildlife desperately needs a helping hand.
Whether building a bird feeder, making a wildlife-friendly space in your garden, holding a fundraising event; or donating to our #NationalRobinDay appeal to help the future of all UK songbirds - no matter how small, every action goes a long way to helping Ruby Robin and all her friends.
Everyone can get involved, it’s really easy for your workplace, school or group of friends to take part, we have some great ideas to get you started!

Why fundraise for
SongBird Survival this
National Robin Day?
“Over the years I have noticed less and less songbirds, especially the sounds of our cherished 'dawn chorus' and so for my birthday this year, I'm asking for donations to SongBird Survival. I've chosen this non-profit because their mission means a lot to me, and I hope you'll consider contributing as a way to celebrate with me. Every little bit will help me reach my goal.” Sally, Facebook birthday fundraiser, November 2021
“I'm Ella I’m 5 and all birds especially songbirds are important to me because they make beautiful songs to listen to and have different colours and I would love everybody to help save them. I am going to try this September to join the SongBird Survival and raise some extra pennies and help them carry on with their research to see why songbirds are on the decline and what we can do to stop this.” Ella, Facebook Fundraiser, September 2021
“I've been into nature since I was very young, my gramps is a very keen twitcher and it is something I picked up from him. I had an amazing pair of second hand swift binoculars one Christmas in my early twenties and they are one of the best things I've ever had. Being outdoors and appreciating the creatures we share our planet with not only helps my mental health, it makes me want to do as much as I can to protect them.” Leanne, Facebook Fundraiser, August 2021
“I've chosen this charity because their mission means a lot to me, and meant a lot to my Sister, Victoria, who recently died and who I miss so much.
I hope that instead of sending cards or presents for my birthday this year, you'll consider contributing any amount large or small and help me remember Victoria and raise money for British songbirds who are experiencing a catastrophic decline. Victoria particularly loved Nightingales - tiny birds with the most beautiful song whose numbers are threatened due to loss of habitat plus the challenges of their vast migration (from sub-Saharan Africa to Europe) brings each year, not to mention the climate crisis which is causing evolutionary changes (shorter wings) meaning birds are not returning to the breeding sites that do still remain. Help us help these little songbirds” Claire, Fundraising in memory of a loved one, April 2020
