Bird Gardens Scotland CIC – Conservation – One Hatch at a Time

Bird Gardens Scotland CIC, A bird conservation centre in the Scottish Borders have recently been featured in the news on ITV Border news and STV News showing the marvellous conservation work that they are doing. The centre has recently welcomed new flamingo chicks into the world along with five baby black swans.

Bird Gardens Scotland works to effectively breed rare birds and aims to become a leading conservation breeding and Visitor Centre. The centre is currently home to many species of waterfowl, most of which are endangered or threatened in their native environment. We also keep rheas, emus, wallabies, minority domestic ducks and rare chicken breeds. Currently, we are building a Visitor Centre and a Baby Barn to rear chicks including Chilean Flamingos.

Our expert bird breeder, Owen Joiner is one of a few people to successfully hand-rear these beautiful birds. By bringing birds and people together, we can contribute to the conservation of threatened species from Scotland and across the world.

Come for a visit and enjoy the two hectares of gardens and the birds that live within them. 

We’re open every day except Christmas Day from 10:00 -18:00 (or dusk if earlier).

We’re adjacent to Oxton Pottery a working pottery with classes for all levels.
