    Default Time to watch the birdies .....

    This weekend is RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch. All you need to do is spend an hour watching the birds in your garden on either Saturday 29, or Sunday 30 January 2011 and then log online what you have seen.

    For more information have a look at the RSPB website

    On the link I mentioned at the beginning (and HERE) there is an ID sheet that you can print out. It has pictures of the birds that you are most likely to see. There is also additional links on that page to help you identify other birds.
