The Robin has a melodious tone and can be heard all year round; their confident song is a delight to hear but can actually be a warning to other birds not to stray into their territory. Despite their cute Christmas card appearance, they are ferociously territorial and are very quick to drive away other robins.
They can be seen across the UK in woodlands, hedgerows, parks and gardens, and feed mainly on insects, worms and appreciate a good quality bird seed mix. Live mealworms are a firm favourite and the robin being one of the tamest wild birds can be easily trained to take food from an outstretched hand.
They are known for having a ‘sweet tooth’ and often take uncooked pastry and cake especially fruit cake, so if you have any leftovers these make a lovely treat on the bird table.
Haith’s Fat Robin soft food is nutritious and is blended together with high-energy berry flavoured suet pellets and ever-popular sunflower hearts plus vegetable oils and raisins. It will be taken eagerly from a bird table, softfood feeder, or when lightly sprinkled on the ground - the robins love it!
