With spring just around the corner, eagle-eyed wildlife lovers from across Gedling borough are gearing up for the yearly Big Garden Birdwatch.
This year’s event takes place between January 26-28, and as usual the public are being asked to spend just one hour watching and recording the birds in their garden or local green space, then send their results to the RSPB.
As well as at home, those interested in taking part can head up to Gedling Country Park and join other bird watchers getting involved in the event.
You can join the Gedling Country Park ranger on Saturday, January 26 and Monday 28 from 11am where forms and pencils will be provided. People interested in taking part should meet at the cafe.
Park ranger Alastair Glenn said: ” You’ll will need to sit quietly for 1 hour outside so don’t forget to dress up warm and don’t forget your binoculars if you have some.”
For more details about the event phone Alastair on 07989682110 or email [email protected]
Those taking part at home can find out more details about how to get involved by visiting the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch site https://www.rspb.org.uk/get-involved/activities/birdwatch/
