Care UK residents have their binoculars ready for this years RSPB Birdwatch

Preparations are underway, as Mill View 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 making bird food fat balls to entice more wildlife into the garden and watching nature-themed films. 

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, Debbie Wheeler, explained why taking part in the Birdwatch is important for residents at Mill View: “The RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch is always a popular event here at Mill View, 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! 

“We’re sure this year’s event will be a flying success, and we’re looking forward to finding out which types of wildlife we are sharing our garden with here at Mill View!”
