Yes indeed, it's that time of year again when bird lovers (yes, that's us) unite for The Big Garden Birdwatch. For the past 30 years RSPB have been asking supporters to spend just one hour recording each bird species seen in their garden, or local park (not flying over) at any one time, on either Saturday 30 or Sunday 31 January 2010.
All you need is a pen or pencil and paper and a nice cup/flask of tea! It's a wonderful way to be involved in something that really counts. As the RSPB say, "The Big Garden Birdwatch has never been more important than it is today, helping us create a 'snapshot' picture of bird numbers in each region, showing us that some of our birds are disappearing in scary numbers". You can find lots of information on their website and community blog. So wrap up warm, sharpen those pencils and get counting those very precious feathered friends of ours....
