Eckington Court Takes The Nature Trail

06 February 2021 News

Staff and residents at Eckington Court have joined in the fun of the Big Garden Birdwatch 2021. 

Everyone was super enthusiastic to participate in the event, and staff helped residents make special bird food hanging pots made from lard, nuts, and bird seed, to attract their feathered friends into the garden.  The pots were hung around the home and outside the windows of residents’ rooms and prompted discussions about the different types of birds they saw. 

Trudy Godley, Home Manager at Eckington Court, said “The bird watching activities certainly raised everyone’s spirits and gave us all something positive to focus on. We talked about the birds that came into the garden, where they came from and some of our residents remembered their childhood days, when they played in their own gardens. They all loved being outside in the fresh air and around nature.”
