Binoculars at the ready! Davers Court takes part in nationwide birdwatch

Home news

 

Residents at Davers Court are participating in a nationwide bird count as part of this year’s RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch.

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

Binoculars at the ready! Davers Court takes part in nationwide birdwatch

Residents will be taking part in a variety of activities related to our feathered friends, including making fat cakes to feed the birds, painting bird boxes, and a wildlife-inspired 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.  

Deputy home manager, Sophie Evans, explained why taking part in the Birdwatch is important for residents at Davers Court: “We’ve got our binoculars at the ready and we’re raring to go for this year’s Big Garden Birdwatch! 

“The annual event provides a great opportunity to get outside and connect with nature – something which has many therapeutic benefits, especially for those living with dementia. It’s a real sensory experience for residents, who have the opportunity to experience the sights, sounds and textures of a crisp January day – all while looking out for visiting feathered friends! 

“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 Davers Court!”
