Who can we help?
We take around 500 baby and adult garden birds from Staffordshire residents each year.
Blackbirds, Reed Buntings, Magpies, Jays, Crows, Starlings, Song thrush, Robins, Yellowhammers, Greenfinch, Goldcrest, Goldfinch, House Sparrow, Tree Sparrow, Swallows, Chaffinch, Bullfinch, Long Tailed Tits, Blue Tits, Great tits, Woodpeckers, Fieldfare, House Martin, Swifts, Wrens and Dunnocks.
Birds that we don't take are Chickens, Quail, Pheasant, Birds of Prey (hawks , Owls)
We prioritise birds from Staffordshire, but we CAN take pigeons from other sanctuaries if the bird needs a soft release or outdoor space.
We are a fly free sanctuary - that means that our birds are not cages up, they can come and go as they wish. This also means that we DO get predators such as Sparrowhawks now and again taking the birds.
These are all wild birds and this is absolutely normal and natural.
Please do not ask us to take a bird from you if you do not want it to be released, unless the bird is unable to fly, we WILL allow birds to leave should they wish.
We do not collect birds, you will ave to bring the birds to us.
If you are a bird rehabber wanting us to take your bird for release, please contact us via whats app or email
