Bird is the word! Leamington Spa care home residents spread their wings to celebrate the best of British birds

January 3rd 2020

Care UK homes take part in a celebration of British birds_1_0_20Residents at a care home in Leamington Spa are gearing up to take part in some avian-themed activities this January.

Inspired by the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, which takes place from Saturday 25th to Monday 27th January, residents will be taking part in a variety of activities related to our feathered friends, as well as topping up their bird feeders and counting the species in their garden.

Alongside Care UK homes across the country, Priors House, on Old Milverton Lane, will be celebrating the best of British birds by hosting a talk about local wildlife with Simon Watts, who has been featured on BBC’s Springwatch.

Francine Summers, home manager at Priors House, explained why discovering our wildlife is an important activity: “Everyone is really looking forward to celebrating British birds this January and learning more about our feathered friends. We’ve been researching British birds common to Leamington Spa and are very excited to be taking part in a variety of activities throughout January.

“Residents here at Priors House have a keen interest in nature, so we thought that researching local wildlife, as well as seeing birds of prey would be the perfect way to discover what’s on our doorstep. We’d like to thank RSPB for inspiring us to get involved, and Simon Watts for sharing his knowledge - we can’t wait to get started!”

Priors House is a state-of-the-art care home which provides full-time residential, nursing and dementia care, as well as short-term respite care. Designed to enable residents to live enjoyable and fulfilling lives, the care home has its very own cinema, coffee shop and hairdressers, and there is plenty of space both indoors and out for relaxation and recreation.
