Last month, residents of Hartismere Place care home, in Eye, had their binoculars to hand when they took part in the RSPB’s Big Garden Bird Watch.

The weekend long survey saw a number of different birds and wildlife species recorded in the care home gardens.

To celebrate the success of the event, pupils from nearby St Peter and St Paul Primary school visited the care home along with some special guests from the Zoo-Tastic Mobile Petting Zoo.

Matthew Calver, home manager at Hartismere Place said: “The birdwatch is a popular activity, so we were delighted to welcome St Peter and St Paul Primary School, and Zoo-Tastic to join us for the big event.

“All of the residents enjoyed taking part, and learning more about the wildlife in our garden.”
