Walk with Hawks pay a flying visit to Mill House

Residents at Mill House care home in Chipping Campden were treated to a ‘flying’ visit this this week when ‘Walks with Hawks’ visited our home with a few of their feathered friends.

This was an exciting activity for our residents as we have not had anything quite like this before here at our home. There was lots of excited and eager residents as well as members of the team, prior to their visit.

Clare brought a selection of her rescue birds including a Kestrel and a Barn Owl. Our residents thought all of the birds were “beautiful”, and particularly enjoyed the interaction with the birds as they were able to wear gloves for the birds to perch upon.

However, the most popular bird by far was a tiny burrowing owl named ‘The Mighty Thor’. This little bird was so full of personality despite his size and brought a lot of laughter to the room. He was a bit naughty as he ignored some of his commands and flew from resident to resident but they thought it was hilarious and they all wanted him to perch on them.

Clare was very passionate and knowledgeable about her birds and provided everyone with lots of interesting facts and everyone thoroughly enjoyed an informative and fun afternoon. Animal interaction is a very beneficial activity to our residents, and it is also very special to be able to get so close to such beautiful and majestic animals.

We are definitely looking forward to welcoming them back here to Mill House.
