As part of the Diocesan Year of the Environment, why not join in with the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch?
If you love birds and want to help them, then the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch is your chance to do something that really counts.
All you need is a pen, some scrap paper (or, a printout of the RSPB's handy bird ID sheet), and an hour to spend watching the birds in your garden on either Saturday 29, or Sunday 30 January 2011.
Then simply record the highest number of each bird species seen in your garden, or churchyard at any one time, and let the RSPB know what you saw.
You can find more information and download the RSPB's handy bird ID sheet at www.rspb.org.uk/birdwatch
