Braywood Gardens Care Home Constructs Birdwatching Garden to Help Natural Ecosystem

The team at Braywood Gardens care home in Carlton, Nottingham, constructed a natural birdwatching area, just in time for RSPB’s Feed the Birds Day on the 29th of October.

The space was created to help feed the birds during the cold months and preserve the natural ecosystem as well as offer residents the opportunity to spot a variety of local wildlife in their area.

Braywood Gardens were fortunate to receive a voucher donation from the Garden Centre in East Bridgford Garden & Home, where the team purchased a bird table, a four-arm complete feeding station, bird feed, high energy fat balls and a nesting basket to hang in the tree.

A team member at the home donated binoculars so the residents can sit and look out of the big window onto the beautiful grounds of Braywood Gardens and search for all the natural wildlife.

Wild birds are incredibly important in the lives of many people and important to our ecosystem. The RSPB’s Feed the Birds Day celebrates this special relationship and encourages everyone to feed garden birds.

Home Manager, Leanne Armstrong, at Braywood Gardens said:
“We finished our very own Braywood Gardens birdwatching area just in time for RSPB’s Feed the Birds Day and we are so happy with how it has turned out. The residents now have a designated area to spot the birds in the area and record what they have found by writing in a book or by taking a photo. It’s also great for the natural ecosystem and will ensure that the birds have a safe place to eat and do not hungry during the cold winter months.”
