Winner of Vote for Britain's National Bird

Wednesday, June 17, 2015Charlotte in England

Did you vote for Britains favourite National bird?

I did. I voted for the Robin! 
It was tough though, I was tempted by the Barn Owl and the Wren but I think the Robin is iconic. 


And the winner is....

The Robin!


Here's a photo I took of our robin who is nesting in the conifers at home

Over 200,000 people voted and the robin won with 34% of the vote. Wouldn't it be nice for Britain to have the classic robin as a national emblem. 

The Barn Owl came in second place and the Blackbird third. 

David who set up the campaign "is a naturalist, writer, broadcaster, speaker, photographer, wildlife tour leader and educationist." (Source & website here). Apparently "Mr Lindo said he would speak to the Government once the public had voted to see if the winner can be awarded the title officially." (Source here)
