Get Counting In The Big Garden Birdwatch 2016

This may seem like a tricky time of year for wildlife spotting, but that's exactly what the RSPB wants you to do this weekend for the Big Garden Birdwatch.

The annual public survey records which birds are most common in which part of the country.

Taking part is completely free, and you can do it from your own garden. You just need to spend an hour of your time watching feathered visitors in your garden and recording what you see. Don't have a garden? You can contribute to the survey from your local park, community garden or green space. Never done it before? Request a free information pack from the RSPB to get you started.

The RSPB will use the data gleaned from the event to ascertain which species are most at risk and require conservation measures.

See the results of last year's survey.

The Big Garden Birdwatch 2016 takes place 30-31 January.
