Found a bird in need in the North Norfolk area? Please see our information pages for help or contact us direct. Regretfully, we are by appointment only so please ring before bringing any birds to us.
It's spring time at Wing and a Prayer and we already have our first babies in who each need hourly feeding and med's to help them with their recovery.
We explained to our supporters last year that we were going to operate as a rehabilitation center, with our main focus on hand rearing of nestling and juvenile birds. In other words we are primarily a wild bird orphanage.
This means that our dedicated team is now working through the daylight hours keeping these beautiful and demanding babies happy and healthy and it is just the start of baby season.
Unfortunately, with most babies coming in from injuries such as cat bites and damage from falling from nests, our med's bills and fresh food bills are going to double. Whilst we have managed during winter months, we would now be grateful for any support that people can lend us.
Volunteers are always essential to our work and needed and our website has lots of information about the work involved and how you could help be a part of our birds recoveries. The only thing we ask for is due to the nature and changeability of the work, volunteers give a minimum of one day a week.
If time is something you can't spare, then if you could help us with a donation of any amount this would go a long way to helping with our costs. Anything from £0.99 "feed a bird" makes a difference or if you really want to help our orphans, you could purchase a Haven orphan sponsorship pack for just £10! Please see our shop for more details.
If you are able to donate, then please also consider gift aid which gives us a top of 25% on top of your donation. For more details please visit our shop or website.
Thank you in advance for any help you can offer us to help us prepare for baby season and please see the attached pictures of our first babies of the year!
