On the 24th of May we had the birds of prey come in to teach the residents and to let them hold some of the birds.
They spent the morning brining in various type of birds especially owls which they would give a general description of their habitats and behaviours in the wild. We had a group of residents in the activity centre that wanted to hold the birds and some of the residents sat in the dining room that wanted to see the birds but didn’t feel comfortable holding them.
It was very insightful to hear about what the birds were like in the wild and the handler was very knowledgeable, being able to answer any of the questions residents had. We learnt a lot about England’s birds of prey and plan to do more activities like this in the future.
