It’s a Birdie!

A flock of our homes joined in with the celebrations of National Bird Day on the 5th of January to support with raising awareness about the value of birds in our ecosystem. Hundreds of residents took to their gardens, armed with binoculars, for a spot of enjoyable birdwatching to discover which species they could find. Of course, the quintessential British Wood Pigeon came out as number one!

Getting creative, residents of Birchmere Mews Care Home in Solihull crafted a beautiful memorial devoted to the winged animals, which is now proudly displayed in the home for guests to observe on their visits. Albion Court also got involved by trying their hand at building some amazing birdhouses for their garden, which have proven to become a popular feeding destination, attracting a variety of species to their home.

Bird expert Simon, a resident at Knowle Gate Care Home in Knowle, delivered an insightful seminar on everything birds for the rest of his community. His broad knowledge has earned him the newly proclaimed name of ‘David Attenborough’, and has got everyone thinking about the critical impacts the environment has endured, which has resulted in huge effects on how our birds live and what we can do to support their existence. The community have thoroughly enjoyed learning about the topic which had everyone on a ‘constant’ birdwatch, excited to see what they can find throughout the year.
