South Wales Echo - - YOURS -

THE Amelia Trust Farm is call­ing on lo­cal chil­dren to help give wild birds a hand this win­ter at a num­ber of na­ture events.

On Jan­uary 21, youngsters can have a go at mak­ing wild bird feed­ers us­ing nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als.

The feed­ers can be taken home and hung in gar­dens ready for the RSPB’s Big Gar­den Bird­watch which is tak­ing place on Jan­uary 28-30.

On Jan­uary 28, the Amelia Trust Farm is en­cour­ag­ing fam­i­lies to come along and help out with its big bird­watch. Fam­i­lies can meet out­side the cafe at 11am for a walk around the farm and wood­lands to spot as many dif­fer­ent species of birds as pos­si­ble.

On Fe­bru­ary 11, fam­i­lies are in­vited to join farm staff to vol­un­teer with the an­nual Big Farm­land Bird count or­gan­ised by the Game and Wildlife Trust.

Fam­i­lies can meet out­side the cafe at 11am for a walk around the farm to see how many dif­fer­ent species of birds can be found.

After the walk there will be the chance for chil­dren to have a go at mak­ing some bird feed­ers.

Full de­tails of all these events can be found on the events sec­tion of the Amelia Trust Farm’s web­site www. ameli­a­trust.org.uk

Some of the events re­quire pre­book­ing and are be­ing held as a fundraiser for the Amelia Trust Farm.

All pro­ceeds will raise much-needed funds to help support the im­por­tant work that the farm does with vul­ner­a­ble and dis­ad­van­taged young peo­ple.
