Birds have appealed to our imagination from the beginning of time.

Some of the earliest jewellery found depicts birds.

One of my favourite bird legends is that of St Kevin , founder of Glendalough .

He was a hermit and lover of animals and birds .

 One Day  when he was praying with his hands outstretched  through the window of his  tiny hermit cell,  a blackbird landed in his palm, he stayed still,she built her nest and laid her egg, in an act of kindness  he didn’t move until the baby bird had flown.
