Robins nest near checkout at Sidmouth Garden Centre

Robin feels quite at home after nesting close to customers’ checkout at garden centre

A CHEEKY robin has decided to nest just a few feet from the checkout at Sidmouth Garden Centre.

Hundreds of people each day are passing right by the nest but the robin clearly doesn’t feel it or its eggs are vulnerable.

The robin’s nest is in a display with hedgehog planters, so it obviously felt at home. Its search for food will not be difficult as staff are making sure seed is readily available.
