A care home in Colinton is gearing up to take part in this year’s RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch. Residents from Care UK’s Cairdean House on Redford Road have their binoculars at the ready and their bird feeders filled as they prepare for the world’s largest wildlife survey from Saturday 28th until Monday 30th January. The home will be joined by community RSPB officer Amber Jenkins who will run two information and bird spotting sessions. The RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch encourages people throughout the UK to take a closer look at the nature on their doorsteps by counting the different birds, as well as recording any non-bird species such as badgers and hedgehogs, which visit their garden in any one hour. This takes place over the last weekend of January.
