We’re delighted to be partnering with Netflix and Aardman on Robin Robin, a half-hour, stop-motion, festive story for the whole family, about a young robin trying to fit in. It’s debuting on Netflix on 24 November – get the date in your diary!
To celebrate, we’re inviting you to join exclusive Robin Robin-themed adventure trails right here at Fairburn Ings and St Aidan's this Christmas season.
Over 30 RSPB nature reserves around the UK, including us, are running bespoke family trails to help you be your best robin. Our trails include an exclusive Robin Robin and RSPB activity pack, with a trail booklet, robin-related activities, a bird food recipe card, and much more. These fun-filled trails will allow your whole family to experience the festive joy of Robin Robin, all while spending time in the great outdoors together.

Running from 24 November to 10 January, the adventure will mean you all learn to sing like a robin, find your very own superpower, and use all your senses to connect with your robin within. An activity booklet will help you complete all the challenges and be rewarded with a certificate for completing the trail and becoming a brilliant robin.
We’ve also got an audio trail available, voiced by Bronte Carmichael, the voice actor for Robin Robin. Other activities we’ve got on offer include robin-themed crafts and storytelling events at both sites, and nest building at Fairburn Ings.
We will be offering Robin Robin-themed food and drink so adventurers can refuel in style! Our Fairburn Ings shop will also have Robin Robin books, an exclusive Robin Robin pin badge and products on offer to help families look after robins and other wildlife at home this winter.
We are excited to be working with Aardman and Netflix to celebrate the festive magic of the robin with families. Robins are one of the UK’s most beloved birds and a true Christmas icon. Our new trails will immerse you in the Robin Robin story and bring it to life in our reserve’s special greenspaces. We hope the film and our adventure trails can inspire everyone to discover robins and the other wildlife that they share their homes with, and to enjoy exploring nature. Our Robin Robin activity pack also includes activities and ideas on how you can help robins and other wildlife at home this winter.
Dan Ojari and Mikey Please, co-creators and directors of Robin Robin, say: “It’s a dream come true to be partnering with the RSPB, bringing our Robin into their wonderful reserves and helping families connect with the wildlife around them. The story of Robin Robin plays with a misunderstanding between ‘the Who-mens’ and birds and we’re thrilled to support any effort that will help bring our two worlds closer together.” Full information on our Robin Robin events and activities can be found here (Fairburn Ings) or here (St Aidan's)!
