Beguiled by the birds

St Catherine's residents enjoying Big Garden Bird Watch

The world of nature right outside the windows of our nursing homes gave up some of its secrets during the Big Garden Bird Watch.

The gardens at our St Catherine’s nursing home in Newcastle and Holy Cross in Sunderland are filled with wonderful things to see all year round and our residents really enjoyed the opportunity to take a closer look at some of their bird visitors.

Our residents joined the thousands of others across the country to take part in the Big Garden Bird Watch and found it very relaxing and fascinating.

“It might sound funny, but it’s quite addictive,” laughed Dorothy. “I didn’t take much notice of the birds before, but now I rather enjoy looking out to see which new birds are visiting our feeders.”
So, that’s another activity to add to the varied programme already enjoyed by our residents.
