Rock the robin’s trail this Christmas

Thursday 30th November 2017

Northumberland Wildlife Trust’s Hauxley Wildlife Discovery Centre on Druridge Bay is starting the countdown to the festive season tomorrow (1 December) with the launch of its new Christmas Robin Trail.

Between Friday 1 December and Sunday 31 December, the wildlife charity is inviting members of the pubic, whatever their age, to follow the trail around the reserve and learn more about the unofficial bird of Christmas along the way.

With a number of cards dotted around the reserve, each holding interesting facts about the iconic red breasted little bird, a letter printed on the back and cryptic clues as to where the next card is hidden, it’s a great alternative to the hustle and bustle of shopping centres and high street stores.

Once all the letters have been collected, the name of the Hauxley robin will be revealed and a small prize given, and, best of all, it’s free!

Opened in June this year, the new centre is so popular with the public, it will only close on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, so, why not add it to your list of things to do this Christmas? Learn more about Hauxley Wildlife Discovery Centre here.
