Lennox House residents flock together for birdwatch

January 24th 2019

 

Residents at Lennox House have their binoculars at the ready ahead of the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch. 

Care UK residents prepare to take part in RSPB birdwatch this January

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

The home has invited pupils from Pooles Park Primary School to join them for the occasion. The children, who have been working on a special project focusing on British birds, will be exchanging their knowledge with the residents.

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, Ana Tudorache, explained why taking part in the Birdwatch is important for residents at Lennox House: “The residents have spent the last few weeks filling bird feeders and reading up on the variety of birdlife often spotted around Islington – and we’re all set for this year’s Big Garden Birdwatch! 

“The thing we love most about birdwatching here at Lennox House, is that it really brings nature to life. What’s more, the sensory stimulation of the colourful sights and beautiful sounds of the garden can often be a great reminiscence activity, and bring memories from many years ago to the surface. 

“We’re thrilled that Pooles Park Primary School will be joining us to help get this year’s event off to a flying start!”
