Robin Is Red Hot Favourite For Britain’s National Bird

Britain has never had a national bird and according to William Hill, it is the robin who looks set to win the vote when it takes place on the 7th May. With the vote made on the same day of the General Election, it is 2/1 that the robin becomes the national bird followed by the barn owl at 4/1.


“The British robin is a confident and territorial bird and as such reflects the personality of the UK,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “Not only that, it is an incredibly popular bird that has been a big part of Christmas for years.”
