• Welcome to Little Wings Bird Sanctuary

Wild Bird Sanctuary

Wild birds are naturally frightened of humans and when injured or stressed they need a secluded environment with as little disturbance as possible to give them the best chance to survive. Unfortunately, due to the nature of our work, the Sanctuary is not open to the public. I run the Sanctuary on my own with the help of the trustees, Pauline Mclynn, Jo Gurney and Sheila Archbold and work very closely with the Sanctuary Vets Susie Brown and Darren Carr.

Funding and Donations

Little Wings is a small Charity which does get a grant from the Department of Agriculture but the Sanctuary relies heavily on fundraising and donations. Caring for our birds is very time consuming and expensive. Our sick birds need heat, frequent feeding and medications, plus the cost of bedding for the hens and the maintenance of the buildings, aviaries, fences and land.

How You Can Help

There are over 50 birds in our care at the present time so any help, however small, is very much appreciated. If anyone would like to make a donation or provide grain, seed, wild bird seed, fat balls etc please contact Christine, Tel. 071 918 1587 or 086 0273 337.

Welcome to Little Wings Bird Sanctuary, Banada, Co Sligo, Ireland.

Little Wings is a safe haven for injured or abandoned garden birds, Ducks, hens and Budgerigars that have been abused or are homeless or the owner can no longer care for them. The aim of the sanctuary is to rehabilitate the wild birds so that they may be released back into the wild. The domestic birds that are not suitable for re homing can live in the safe and secure environment of the Sanctuary.
