It’s that time again when the creatures of the wild are flourishing happily and the beautiful outdoors really come to life. The trees are lush, flowers are blossoming and we can easily hear birds chirp their songs away and rise with summer sun. This inspired our list of favourite birds in the UK and even all the way from Canada!
Read on to discover a few of the favourite birds in the Muddy Puddles office…and this week perhaps instead of shuffling bleary eyed out of bed why not throw open the window and listen to the birdsong to celebrate our feathery friends.
Mine is a cliche I know but I simply love the little robin redbreast. They are so friendly and curious darting around..
Guy chose the blackbird – always hopping around looking for worms!
The lovely Melissa, our merchandiser chose the cormorant – amazing how long they can stay under water for!
For Suky its the Goldfinch, beautiful tiny little bird that looks quite exotic.
For Kim our creative it is the blue tit ‘because they are small and fat but are still super cute. She thinks ‘they are an inspiration to all of us!’
For our newest Muddy team mate Jara from Canada is a blue jay (Canadian), but she’ll settle for a Cardinal. Love the red and so rare to spot
And from Vanessa in our school team the Kingfisher – my dad used to spend hours with us when we were little spotting them at the river
And for Sam also working with schools the Sparrowhawk! An incredible sight, the bright yellow eyes and speed, and have had two eating blackbirds in my garden now (sorry Guy) – an amazing and gory sight!

Then lastly I absolutely loved a story I heard on the radio this morning about a nightingale who loved to sing along to the cello. Click here to learn more.
