BIRDS flocked to a Tyneside care home garden after residents put out homemade feeders for the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch.

Residents at Waverley Lodge Care Home installed the feeders to attract as much wildlife as possible while they took part in the nationwide survey.

It is the largest survey of its kind in the world, involving over 500,000 participants each year, with the findings providing figures on the UK’s bird population.

Among those seen in the care home garden were blue, great and coal tits, sparrows, robins and magpies.

Resident Derek Munroe, one of those who made the feeders, said: “The birds will have a feast with all these seeds.”

Julie Booth is the home manager at Waverley Lodge Care Home, on Bewick Crescent, Lemington, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

She said: “The RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch is a great activity for our residents to get involved in.

“We found a recipe for the bird feeders on the RSPB website and everyone thoroughly enjoyed making them and putting them outside to attract wildlife.

“They worked a treat, as we had loads of different species flocking to the garden. The residents were thrilled with the results.”
