A Cringleford care home had bird-feeders filled and binoculars at the ready when it took part in this year’s RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch.

Residents at Cavell Court participated in the annual wildlife survey and recorded the number of birds, as well as other wildlife species they spotted in their garden.

Residents were joined by police cadets to help identify the different species of birds and local wildlife in the home garden.

There was also a special visit from Norfolk Wild Encounters, which brought a selection of birds of prey for residents to interact with including a burrowing owl, great grey owl and European eagle owl.

Samantha Woods, customer relations manager at Cavell Court, said: “The Birdwatch is a popular activity with our residents every year, so we were delighted to welcome the children and Norfolk Wild Encounters to join us for the big event. All of the residents enjoyed taking part and learning more about the wildlife in our garden.
