Residents and staff at Anchor’s Eastlake care home in Godalming, run by Business Manager Linda Grout teamed up with pupils from Moss Lane School in Godalming run by head teacher Mrs Abbott, to support the RSPB garden bird watch.
Residents at Eastlake took part in the world’s biggest wildlife survey to watch and monitor if birds numbers are declining.
Residents looked out to see what birds and wild life they could see in an hour. They spotted Blackbirds, Blue tits, Robin, Wood Pigeon and a Grey Squirrel. We then sent off the information so our results could be used in the survey.
On Wednesday residents, staff and pupils from Moss Lane School made bird seed cake to put in outside to encourage birds into our garden. This will help fatten up the birds for the winter as they struggle to find food this time of year and also give enjoyment for the residents watching. Pupils from the school also decorated cakes with chocolate eggs for themselves and our resident.
Eastlake would like to thank Mrs Abott and the children from Moss Lane School for helping make this event extra special. Resident Judith Maynard said “It was a delight to see all the children’s happy smiling faces and the whole morning was a delight”.
