Are you bored with lockdown weekends? Do you like looking out of your window? Well how about this?...
This weekend is the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch. If you fancy spending an hour looking out of your window into your garden or outside area (You don't even have to have a garden!), you could join in with the Garden Birdwatch for 2021. All you need is a pencil and paper and some way of identifying the birds you might see. Ask your grown-ups if they have any bird identification books or maybe you could try using the internet to look up the birds you spot?
You can find all the information you need on the RSPB website www.rspb.org.uk and the best part is it's totally free!
Keeping track of the wildlife we see in our local area is really important. It tells us how well creatures can survive and indicates how well we are looking after our environment. If we don't keep track of the changes, we might be in danger of creating damage to our ecosystem that is irreversible. This means animals and insects may become endangered or may not be able to live in their natural environments.If you choose to join in this activity, please let us know what you have spotted and how much fun you have had!
