It's official(ish)............................................... the Robin is now our National Bird

We have had a poll on which bird should represent the UK.

The result has been revealed... and the winner is the Robin.

 A lovely little bird I see every day in my garden... the Robin got a third of the votes.

It's not a Bald Eagle but it's a feisty little bird all the same.
It is the bird I voted for by the way.
The organisers of the vote are now going to ask the government to make it official.

Linking to Saturday's Critters and Wild Bird Wednesday

Great choice. The darling English Robin should definitely be your National Bird! I love this.

Now we all knew it would be the Robin. Everyone always knows the Robin. It is on Christmas cards and every garden ususual has a Robin. By the way my Dunock brought their off spring into the garden yesterday but I did not have my camera out as I was gardening from 7.00am!! and only saw it when I sat down for a break.

I'm a new follower to your blog. It's great that the Robin is now our National bird... our pair have nested twice in our garden this year... 1st in our old bbq and 2nd time under the tin roof of our shed. Off to have a look through your blog archive :o)

All these years and there wasn't an official bird? You Brits don't like to rush into things do you?

Wow! I love the robin. Such pretty captures you have shared too.

It wasn't my choice but it's still a good choice I think. It's always a joy to see it trying to dominate my garden.

Sweet little bird. I like our robins a lot, they have charm and pluckiness.

But I have to admit yours are prettier.

Congratulations, the Robin is a really cute little bird, and I love the bright chest color. I don't know who the other contenders were.
