Spring birds in the Midlands

As spring starts to burst into life so do the comings and goings of the birds who call the places in our care home (even if just for a few months). Some leave after their winter re-fuel while so many more return to breed and enjoy spring and summer with us.

We take special care to look after gardens, woodlands and moors to help birds thrive. Woodpeckers, skylarks, robins or wrens, which will you spot?
