Halstead care home residents take birdwatch weekend to the ‘nest’ level

Halstead care home residents take birdwatch weekend to the ‘nest’ level

care home

Residents at a care home in Halstead celebrated Britain’s best birds as part of the world’s largest garden wildlife survey – and it was a flying success!

This year’s RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch saw residents at Care UK’s Colne View, on Dame Mary Walk, celebrate the best of British birds with some exciting avian-themed activities.

Inviting along pupils from St Andrew’s Primary School for the celebrations, both residents and children enjoyed a visit from Birds of Prey Rescue, giving them the opportunity to get close to some of Britain’s most magnificent creatures.  Everyone enjoyed the special ‘show and tell’ session, where they were able to learn more about our feathered friends.

Putting their baking skills to the test, residents and pupils also made their very own edible bird nest cakes, which were enjoyed while reflecting on the exciting day.

Razvan Stanbeca, home manager at Colne View, said: “Residents love taking part in nature-themed activities here at Colne View, and we had a lot of fun celebrating this year’s bird-themed event with help from pupils at St Andrew’s Primary School.

“Animal therapy can be extremely beneficial for older people – especially for those living with dementia. Being close to animals can help lift a person’s mood, stimulate social interaction and ease agitation. Connecting with nature can also encourage happy memories and the associated emotions.

“I’d like to say thank you to Kala Dowsett and John Dowsett, from Birds of Prey Rescue and the pupils from St Andrew’s Primary School for joining us and making the day so special. Everyone certainly had a fantastic time celebrating the best of British birds!”
