In our January Competition we offered you the chance to win a RSPB freestanding bird table worth £59.99 by telling us what your favourite bird is and why.

We loved Elaine's entry and she was chosen as the winner. 

Her winning entry was as follows:

'Robin, because they are so delightful to watch! One even made a nest in my bicycle basket! I was so pleased when 3 eggs hatched, I was able to see them grow and leave the nest as independent little birds.'

Well done Elaine!
