Just a reminder to everyone that it’s the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch this weekend (24th/25th Jan), a very simple survey of garden birds that is nonetheless very useful in gaging trends in bird numbers. All it requires is an hour spent taking a note of the number of birds in your garden or local park, at any time over the weekend.
For more details see here. I’ll be doing mine on Sunday, as I’ll be spending Saturday at Old Moor helping out with their Big Garden Birdwatch event, which should be worth a visit if anyone’s around!
(Note – the photo above wasn’t taken in my garden… I’m not lucky enough to get tree sparrows!)
