Squirrel Nutkin, the character from Beatrix Potter’s stories, will be taking up permanent residence at Willows Activity Farm in St Albans.
The character, best known for his flying goggles and love of mischief, will appear at the farm from Saturday, May 27.
Fans were given a chance to guess who would be joining famous CBeebies characters Peter Rabbit, Lily Bobtail and Benjamin Bunny from pictures and clues posted on the Willows Facebook page.
Daisy Fry and Max Greenwood, both aged three, were among the first visitors to meet the newest addition to the farm.
Max, from Enfield, said: “Squirrel Nutkin is my favourite Peter Rabbit character and I am so excited he is going to be here every day at Willows.”
