Resident Robin Roof Garden Diary: December 2012

Cheep …  cheep … chirrup …   I’m the New Lanark Roof Garden robin!   I bet you didn’t know that reindeer could fly?  There I was, perched on a bare twig, with my feathers puffed out to keep myself warm.  Jack Frost had already tiptoed across the Roof Garden and worked his magic on the fountain, changing the water into rock.  Then, imagine my surprise when five tiny reindeer, made of sparkling light, came floating down from the sky and landed on the grass nearby!  They said they were very tired as they had flown all the way from the North Pole. The Man Who Looks After the Reindeer will be at New Lanark every weekend and on Monday 24 December so you can visit him.  Hey!  Please put out some crumbs and fresh water for me and my friends this winter.  I know you’ll be stuffing YOUR faces …   Happy Christmas!
