Big Garden Bird Watch-uk

26-27 January 2013 is a date to put in the diary for anyone who loves birds, and wants to take part in annual exercise to see how well the birds have fared in the last year. All you have to do is to spend an hour over this weekend, in your garden or a park and count the maximum number of one type of bird you can see at anyone time! Couldn’t be simpler- all you need is a basic guide book to garden birds- I have a number of pretty comprehensive books,but for this exercise one that just shows the most common species is enough- I use a free guide book my Dad passed onto me from the Daily Telegraph.

For more information and to register go to http://www.rspb.org.uk

Once all the information is collated you will be sent details of the results. The information is used by the RSPB to help our birds.

Do take part- the children will love it. I’ll post my results at the end of January.In the meantime do let me know if you will take part and also if you don’t live in the UK if anything similar happens where you are.

Get counting and Good Luck!
