  • Need


    This project focuses on genuinely orphaned young wild birds, hundreds of whom are brought in to us each Year and would simply not survive without our assistance. Many have been caught by cats or pulled from their nests during garden clearance and building work. Very few are orphaned "naurally"


    We are redressing the balance of man's impact on these wild birds, many of whom, such as the Song Thrush, Sparrow and Starling are ever decreasing and disappearing from their habitats.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To save the lives of genuinely orphaned wild birds.


    » Raise funds to continue to be able to take in, feed and care for these orphans.

    What success will look like

    Success will be in and of itself, the release of these birds.

  • Impact


    We are doing our bit to keep up the population numbers of individual species.


    A lack of funds would mean that we would have to cut back on the numbers of orphans we are able to admit.


    Via our Annual Report, website, social media pages and where required, by individual letter.
