The Bearded Birders: Finding comfort in nature amidst a pandemic (Naturespace with Haith's podcast)

Amidst the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, a small group of men from Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire, found solace in an unexpected place – nature. Calling themselves "The Bearded Birders," Gaz and Andy, these men bonded over their shared love for the outdoors and their mutual understanding of the importance of mental health.

During a time when social isolation and uncertainty were rampant, these men discovered the therapeutic benefits of being surrounded by the beauty of woodland and parks. Through bird watching and exploring the natural world, they found a sense of peace and tranquility that helped alleviate the stresses of daily life.

Years later their mission goes beyond their own well-being; they aim to spread awareness about the profound impact that nature can have on mental health. By sharing their experiences and encouraging others to embrace the outdoors, The Bearded Birders, hope to inspire more individuals to prioritise their mental well-being and connect with nature.

The Bearded Birders remind us of the healing power of nature and the importance of fostering open conversations about mental health. Recently, they've even recorded a podcast with us, further amplifying their message and reaching out to a wider audience.
