Eagle-eyed Rainbows join Tiltwood for the Big Garden Birdwatch

Home news

 

Tiltwood had birdfeeders filled and binoculars at the ready when it took part in this year’s RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, with the help of some local friends. 

Eagle-eyed Rainbows join Tiltwood for the Big Garden Birdwatch

Residents at Tiltwood participated in the annual wildlife survey, and recorded the number of birds, as well as other wildlife species, in their garden. 

A local Rainbows group joined residents to help make seed cakes and placed them around the garden, where they waited to spot which creatures came to try the special treats. 

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.  

Kristina Jacunskiene, home manager at Tiltwood, said: “The birdwatch is always an incredibly popular activity with residents, so we were delighted that the local Rainbows group could join us to make this event even more special for everyone involved. 

“Birdwatching gives older people a fantastic opportunity to get outdoors and be more active, but it’s perfect for all levels of mobility. This wonderfully inclusive hobby can also be enjoyed across the generations and I know the Rainbows learned plenty of new nature knowledge from the residents. We all had a fantastic time and will continue our hobby over the coming months.”
