Care home residents were given a treat when some feathered friends stopped by for a visit.
Ten birds, including a barn owl, snowy owl and European owl, dropped in at the Chadwell House Residential Care Home, of Chadwell Heath, to perform a flight display.
Residents were given the opportunity to hold the birds and they also listened to a talk by Keith Cole from Owls R Us, a group which displays the birds and attempts to encourage their breeding.
Joyce Sims, 92, said: “It was wonderful to have the owls visit, they are amazing to look at and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing and being able to stroke them.”
Nasreen Akhtar, team leader at Chadwell House, added: “Our residents absolutely loved their visit from the owls. It was a wonderful experience and many of them were overwhelmed to have the opportunity to stroke and hold these creatures.
