For all of us who birdwatch it’s not only one of life’s best simple pleasures but a rewarding one as well.
This weekend over a half a million people here in the UK will be happily spending an hour watching and recording what they see for the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch. The Independent article Birdwatchers of Britain is all about it and makes interesting reading.
Based on what I usually see out the front every morning my count will be small but will hopefully include the chaffinch that I saw earlier in the week.
Have a good weekend, and happy birdwatching!
