Big Garden Birdwatch

This weekend, four members of the Bird Watching team took part in the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch.

All you have to do is count the maximum numbers of each species in your garden (or other spot you chose) over a one-hour period over the weekend January 26-27. Then you submit your records on the website. Easy.

Read all about how Carol Debney, Mike Weedon, Matt Merritt and Kevin Wilmot got on in their respective gardens in our March issue (so, you'll have to wait about a month).

Meantime, here are a few shots Mike took during his hour-long garden-watching stint with his children Jasmine and Eddie.

This Blue Tit and its mate were checking out the nest-box nearest Mike's kitchen window. Last year the babies sadly died when still rather featherless. Fingers crossed for this year...
