As part of the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, John McDonnell is inviting us to join a community event counting the birds on Lake Farm. We will meet by the Skylark on Botwell Lane from 1.30pm to 2.30pm on Saturday 26th January and make our way into the field to count as many birds and species of bird as possible.

This is a yearly event that provides results from so many gardens and parks. The data people collect help the RSPB to create a ‘snapshot’ of bird numbers across the UK and assess the population changes to birds in the UK. This data may also assist us in our campaign against building on this much loved and valued green belt.
