RSPB Big Bird Watch

The RSPB big bird watch happened this weekend as some of you might have known, but if you did not get the chance to particpate, now is your time! Sit next to a window that overlooks a garden, or an area such as your driveway or the road. Count the birds that you see land in one hour. Do not count the birds flying, count the birds that land in trees or on the ground. Have a go at recognising them using the ID chart which can be found on the website.


You can still submit your results online at and submit any photo’s you take on the Greswold website here:
