The Big Garden Birdwatch is on January 26-28 and in the weeks leading up to it staff at RSPB Fairburn Ings will be doing all they can to help you get prepared. Part of the visitor centre has been transformed into a lounge to make you feel right at home as you sit and watch their birdfeeders. Staff and volunteers will help identify the garden birds. There’s also the Big Garden Birdwatch Quiz out on the Discovery Trail. More at rspb.org.uk/reserves-and-events/reserves-a-z/fairburn-ings/ See feature on page 66.
