RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch

Can you spare an hour this weekend? If so, sit by a window and count the birds that visit your garden. This important information can then be used by the RSPB so they know how bird populations are doing all over the country. Don’t worry if you don’t know types of birds, there is a pack to help you – just go to the RSPB website and follow the link to the Big Garden Birdwatch to register. Great to increase your knowledge for your NOW classes (if you’re S1!)
