All cosy at Holy Cross

21 November 2019

Residents at our Holy Cross Nursing Home in Sunderland have been helping to make sure the local bird population stays cosy this winter.

During a visit from the local branch of Groundwork, our residents were given lots of tips and practical help to make a collection of bird boxes to hang in the grounds of our nursing home.

Camouflaged with leaves and twigs, the new treetop homes provide a perfect place for birds to shelter in the winter and will, hopefully, be visited by birds looking to raise their young once spring returns.

To make sure their feathered friends have enough to eat during the harsh winter months, our residents also made bird feeders packed with grapes and cereal to hang beside the bird boxes.

So, as well as providing a happy, cosy home for our residents, Holy Cross is a perfect place for keeping the local birds feeling fine, too.
