Don't forget it's the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch this weekend.

It's the RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch this weekend. I'm going to go over and spend an hour with my two nephews and neice, ticking off the birds we see in their garden. But, for the sake of consistency with last year's efforts, I also plan to do it again when I get home.
The RSPB has run this event for 30 years and last year up to half a million people took part. It helps to create a 'snapshot' of bird numbers in each region, giving a good indication of where there are serious dips in bird populations.
The results of the bird watch this weekend, then, is vitally important. It can be the first step to help aid a species recovery.
All you have to do is spend an hour, at a time to suit you, watching and recording the birds you see in your garden. Should be fun! To register and record your findings click here.
