|One local resident!|
I have just registered for the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch, which takes place in the UK over the weekend of 26 and 27 January.
All you need to do in order to take part, is to register your details online and request a pack. Then you just count the birds in your garden, or a local park, for one hour on either of the days, and send your results in via the RSPB website.
You can also download a counting sheet from the website. The Birdwatch pack is full of useful tips to encourage birds to visit your garden or open space, and to support native species.
The information that you send in will help the RSPB to monitor bird populations across the country and promises to be the world’s largest wildlife survey!
A photographer friend of mine will be setting up his camera to record the Big Birdwatch in my garden. Assuming our avian residents are not camera shy, I hope to be able post a fabulous pictorial record of all our garden birds. It will be especially good to catch the woodpecker or the jay!
