Garden birdwatch to help detail Cheshire's wildlife
10:00am Sunday 20th January 2013 in News
CHESHIRE wildlife lovers are being asked to help detail the county’s garden birds by taking part in the 34th annual Big Garden Birdwatch event this month.
Almost 600,000 people across the UK took part in last year’s event, organised by RSPB, counting more than nine million birds between them.
Joanna Keene, of RSPB, said: “Taking part in the survey is fun and simple. Just spend one hour at any time over Big Garden Birdwatch weekend noting down the highest number of each bird species you see in your garden or local park at any one time.
“You’ve then got three weeks to tell us your results either by submitting them online or in the post.
“Everyone who takes part in the Birdwatch is contributing to the world’s biggest wildlife survey and helping us find out more about some of our most-loved garden birds.”
Big Garden Birdwatch 2013 takes place on the weekend of January 26 and 27. Visit rspb.org.uk/birdwatch to register to take part.
