Winter has certainly taken hold at the reserve, with the first flurries of snow dusting our beautiful landscape. The reserve's residents have been stocking up on food to keep warm, as you’ll see in our clip of the month. Our opportunist robin has also been making the most of feeding time, following us (and our peanuts) closely around the reserve!
Around The Reserve: Robin
The red breasted robin has been synonymous with Christmas in the UK for many years. It is perhaps because they are one of the only birds you will hear singing in your garden on Christmas day that they have become a yuletide symbol.
With a beautiful voice and cheeky nature, it is unsurprising that the robin has been the UK's national bird since December 1960. One of our robins has certainly endeared itself to us, following us around the reserve at feeding time. Well you know what they say about the early bird!
During the winter months we find animals using our habitat boxes more and more and they are a firm favorite with our little friendly robin. You can sponsor a habitat box on The Highland Titles Nature Reserve today!
