Prince Michael of Kent Court residents beat winter blues with visit from feathered friends

07 February 2019

Residents at Prince Michael of Kent Court, in Watford, were all of a flutter this week when some friendly feathered visitors came to visit.

Rocky the barn owl, Norman the eagle-owl, Bert the tawny owl and Sparky the saker falcon were among the guests. Delighted residents loved meeting them and learning all about them from Colin Sutherland, Founder of Wings of Freedom.

One resident who was especially delighted by the visit was Dorothy Morrow. Dorothy explained to staff that she had owned a pet pigeon for many years which she was very fond of.

Home Activities Coordinator, Tracy Lydon, said: “We wanted to do something new and fun for our residents to ward off the winter blues, so we invited these beautiful creatures to our Home. Dorothy was thrilled to have the opportunity to spend time with birds again. It was a lovely visit, they certainly put a smile on everyone’s faces!”

The birds were provided by Wings of Freedom, a social enterprise, based in Hermitage, Berkshire.
