Big Garden Birdwatch

Next weekend (28th and 29th of January) is the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch, when people all over the country are encouraged to spend an hour in a garden or local park noting which bird species they see and then contribute to a national survey. Last year more than 600,000 people took part and counted more than £10m birds. In London the top ten most numerous species were:

1. Starling
2. Woodpigeon
3. Blue Tit
4. House Sparrow
5. Blackbird
6. Feral pigeon
7. Great Tit
8. Robin
9. Magpie
10. Goldfinch

As part of this, the Friends of Hilly Fields are organising a birdwatch on Sunday 29th January, 10:30 to 12:30 (met by the Bothy, along from the bowling green off Hilly Fields Crescent). There will be materials for making bird feeders, bird puzzles and colouring/craft activities for children.
