The RSPB will be celebrating 30 years of the Big Garden Birdwatch this year and they need you to take part.
All you need to do is watch your garden or local park for an hour on either Saturday 24 or Sunday 25 January 2009. Simply record the highest number of each bird species seen in your garden (not flying over) at any one time.
You can download a form and find more information from their website.
The Big Garden Birdwatch is the world’s biggest bird survey, providing a vital snapshot of the UK’s birds each winter. The RSPB then uses this information to prioritise their conservaiton work. So by taking part you are helping to protect Britain’s birds.
