‘The BBC had a recent meeting about Terry Taylor’s tame robin ‘Monty’ who has been extremely popular with his antics, and has become a social media celebrity on the BBC Springwatch Facebook fan page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/2357918724/?fref=nf)
Terry reacted on Facebook in upper case letters, “MONTY HAS BEEN TURNED DOWN BY THE BBC. They had a meeting yesterday to discuss Monty, and decided the Monty story was not what they wanted”.
Over 400 BBC Springwatch fans have viewed his post with many writing in telling Terry how unhappy they were with the BBC’s poor executive decision.
The Robin has been nominated as ‘Britain’s National Bird’ after a poll in 2015 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-33090043 and http://www.votenationalbird.com/ . The project was launched on BBC Springwatch
