Big Garden Birdwatch weekend

This weekend (24th/25th Jan) is the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch weekend.
This event has been running for 30 years. The idea is that the public spend an hour recording the birds they see in their garden or a local park and then submit the results to RSPB.

Taking part is great fun for kids (and adults), is free and helps scientists to track long term trends in species abundances and distributions. Why not take part this weekend?

A helpful recording guide is provided by the RSPB here, and there is more information here.
