Preparations are underway, as Amberley Lodge gears up to take part in the world’s largest garden wildlife survey from Saturday 26th January until Monday 28th January.

Residents will be taking part in a variety of activities related to our feathered friends, including nature-themedarts and crafts, painting birds and creating collages with feathers, and a fun ornithology quiz.

2019 marks the 40th anniversary of the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, which encourages people nationwide to count the birds in their gardens to allow the charity to monitor trends and understand how different species are doing. Data from over half a million people is then compared year-on-year to provide a ‘snapshot’ of bird numbers across the UK.  

Home manager, Krystyna Bosko, explained why taking part in the Birdwatch is important for residents at Amberley Lodge: “The RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch is always a popular event here at Amberley Lodge, and preparations are underway to ensure this year is another flying success. 

“Birdwatching is an accessible activity that people of all ages and abilities can enjoy together, whether it’s spending time in the garden topping up the bird feeders, or taking the sounds and sights in from the comfort of an armchair – no matter the weather it’s a great, inclusive activity for all!”
