Wildlife fans at a children’s hospice can watch birds feeding their young, thanks to a donation from the Somerset Ornithological Society (SOS).

The group has given Children's Hospice South West (CHSW) a bird feeder camera, enabling staff, children and families to observe the wide variety of bird species which visit the grounds in Wraxall.

Emma Parker, CHSW community fundraiser, said: "Everyone staying or visiting the hospice is really enjoying watching close-up the birds taking seed from the feeder.

"We've seen a great spotted woodpecker, lots of great tits and blue tits and robins.

"We've set up the screen in the large communal dining room at Charlton Farm so it's accessible to all."

SOS chairman Roger Dickey said: "We are delighted that the hospice is already getting so much value from the bird feeder camera.

"It's great to see the camera working, with plenty of bird visitors, and to know that the children and their families enjoy watching it."
