Every year the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds holds The Big Garden Birdwatch. People are asked to spend an hour during a particular weekend in January making a note of the birds they can see in their garden so that they can pass on the information to the RSPB. This is used to assess the state of the garden bird population in the UK. Thousands of people take part but they can never get enough data so please join in if you can.
We get all kinds of birds in our garden but we love robins because they seem so friendly.
