RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch
Make sure that you take part this weekend in the annual RSPB event.
There are podcasts to download by Kate Humble.
There are fears that the record-breaking temperatures of the summer and autumn of 2006 may have changed the habits of some birds, and affected their migration patterns and food supplies.
Spend an hour - download the survey sheet - make sure that you add your data.
'The Independent' (which gave away free postcards today) suggests 10 species that you might be lucky enough to spot as well as the more usual birds:
  1. Song Thrush
  2. Siskin
  3. House Sparrow
  4. Chiffchaff
  5. Blackcap
  6. Goldcrest
  7. Green woodpecker
  8. Fieldfare
  9. Brambling
  10. Redwing
Going to take part tomorrow. Will let you know how I get on...

Update: here are our results. Fairly slim pickings !!
