Eskmouth Sea Scouts present the bird table and nesting boxes to Esk Hall, Sleights.

Norman, a resident, and Care Home manger Joanne Sutherland are pictured being presented with the bird table and nesting boxes.

The bird table has the scouts symbol a ‘Fleur de Lis’ on the side of it.

Norman, an avid bird lover hopes the bird table and boxes will attract more birds to the grounds, alongside the nuthatch and woodpeckers seen recently as part of the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch.


The bird table will be placed in the garden outside the lounge so that all residents can appreciate it.

The Sea Scouts meet on a Thursday evening at the Scout Hall on Spring Hill, Whitby, between 7pm and 9pm.

They currently have vacancies for young people aged 10.5 and 14 who have an interest in outdoor activities in general and especially on the water.

Last year members enjoyed dinghy sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and bell boating, alongside canning, hiking, shooting, archery and mountain biking.
