    Its that time of year again.

    This weekend its the RSPB Big Garden Bordwatch.

    Its been a long hard winter so far, help the RSPB find out how its effected the birdlife.

    All you need to do this weekend sometime, is make yourself a cup of coffee etc, fine somewhere comfy to spend an hour and count the birds.

    Full instructions and a count sheet Here

    Cheers

    ...and if previous years are anything to go by, all the birds that were in the garden last week will have deliberately disappeared for this weekend only. So I'll be left recording 1 robin, 2 sparrows, 1 blackbird and half a dozen starlings :Angry:

    They know, I'm telling you... :Smile:
