Why not join in the RSPB’s 40th (Yes ! 40th !) Big Garden Birdwatch over the weekend of 25th-27th January. All they are asking for is for you to choose an hour of your time at some time over the weekend, to sit down with a nice hot cup of tea (or other drink of your choice) and count and record the birds you see landing and the other wildlife that you see, such as hedgehogs, frogs, insects, and then to send your results to them.
Although they call it the Big Garden Birdwatch, RSPB are happy for you to do the same thing in your local parks, so you could go to anywhere in Wootton Brook Park, Ladybridge Park, Hunsbury Hill Country Park or the Hillfort to spend your hour.
More details and tips on how to do it properly are available on the RSPB website.
The Friends will be getting involved and are planning a collaborative event between Hunsbury Park Primary School, the Friends of West Hunsbury Parks and idverde to build and erect some bird boxes and bug hotels.
