Residents at Devonshire Court, in Leicester were all of a flutter when some friendly feathered visitors came to visit.
Elvis, a Eurasion eagle owl and Fletcher, a tawny owl, delighted residents who were only too happy to give them a stroke.
Delighted resident Derek said:
It was a lovely visit as we got to hold and stroke these beautiful birds. They certainly put a smile on everyone’s faces!
Home Activities Coordinator, Fiona Collins, 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. It was a fantastic way of bringing nature and the outdoors into the home on a cold winter’s day!”
