A community event has shown how a group of volunteers is bringing nature into the city.
Today's Nature in the Grapes Hill Community Garden event in Norwich included a seed swap, plant sale and homemade cakes, but for many the live birds were the highlight.
Fran Ellington, secretary of the group, said: 'It was a real success. There was a great atmosphere. The people who came and visited really enjoyed the owls and birds of prey. That was a real crowd pleaser.
'It was lovely that people just turned up and played music. We had a really nice crowd all day long.'
The garden group hopes to attract new and regular visitors to the garden, now in its third year.
