Rosemoor’s ‘Birds in the Garden’ week this half-term has been a great success, with great fun being had by all throughout the week! There have been lots of birdie-themed activities to take part in, including Bird I-Spy, Bird Walks, Nest displays, a Children’s Photographic Competition and a Bird Count!

Rachel Crow (7) taking part in the Bird Count - children put one bird nut into the relevant bottle (blackbird, robin, blue tit and chaffinch) for each bird they saw in the Garden.

One of the highlights of the week was a visit from Owl and Raptor rescue group ‘Owls are Us’, who brought in a number of different species of Owl as well as a Falcon.

In the marketing department, we have learnt a lot of interesting facts about birds too – did you know that a blue tit weighs the same as a pound coin, or that a baby robin eats 14 feet of earthworms in a week!? 

Bird Week continues until Monday 23 Feb, so if you haven’t paid us a visit yet, come along over the weekend!
