PLEASE NOTE WE ARE CLOSED TO NEW ADMISSIONS FOR THE WINTER MONTHS.
YOU MAY WISH TO CONTACT ANOTHER RESCUE CENTRE SHOULD YOU NEED ASSISTANCE.
As most people are aware the last few years have been hard for us. Our volunteer levels have been down and as such last year we reviewed how to move forward with the help we had available.
We decided to reopen the Haven as a wild bird orphanage, focusing on what we do best and hand-rearing and rehabilitating injured nestlings and juvenile birds. We are pleased to say that we have had a successful summer doing just that. From blackbirds a dozen, soaring swifts and chaotic kestrels, our nursing team and volunteers have done another fantastic job and got so many babies back into the sky.
Now that baby season is over we are also seeing our nursing team fledge to follow their own paths. We will miss them of course and couldn’t have made this summer work without them, but are equally proud to see them go off into the world alongside our feathered friends.
With autumn and winter on the way we are returning to sanctuary status for the quiet months and focusing on caring for our long-term residents.
This does mean we are closed to new admissions for the winter period. If you therefore find a bird in need, you may wish to contact another rescue centre.
With regards to our long-term residents, please do not forget about them. They too need care and feeding day in and day out and as always we rely on the kind donations of the public to do so.
