Inspired by the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch campaign, people living at Perry Manor care home in Worcester will be getting involved in a variety of activities, including topping up bird feeders and counting species in their garden.

Katherine Matthews, home manager at Perry Manor, said: “Everyone is really looking forward to celebrating British birds and learning more about our feathered friends.

“We’ve been researching birds common to Worcester and are very excited to be taking part in a variety of activities which will also include painting bird boxes, birdwatching and a talk from wildlife expert Simon Watts, a wildlife expert Simon Watts.

“Residents have a keen interest in nature, so we thought that researching local wildlife, as well as seeing birds of prey would be the perfect way to discover what’s on our doorstep - we can’t wait to get started.”
