Colne View had bird-feeders filled and binoculars at the ready when it took part in this year’s RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch.
The residents participated in the annual wildlife survey, and recorded the number of birds, as well as other wildlife species, they spotted in their garden.
Audrey Joslin, home manager at Colne View said: “The birdwatch is a popular activity with residents every year, so we were delighted to welcome Kala Dowsett and her owls to join us for the big event. All of the residents enjoyed taking part, and learning more about the wildlife in our garden.
“Outdoor activities are important for both physical and mental wellbeing, and have many benefits for older people, particularly for those who are living with dementia. Birdwatching can act as a valuable reminiscence activity, as the distinctive sights and sounds of birds in the garden can help evoke memories. This year was another success, and we’d like to thank Kala for joining us.”
