NATURE lovers are being invited to take part in a national survey of wildlife this month.

The RSPB’s 35th annaul Big Garden Birdwatch takes place on January 25 and 26.

It invites residents to count the birds in their garden or nearby park for one hour during the Big Garden Birdwatch weekend and tell the RSBP what they see.

This year, for the first time, the RSPB also wants to know what other wildlife people see in their gardens and parks during the hour.

Jo Keene, from the RSPB, said: “It’s not just the birds which need our help; almost half our hedgehogs have disappeared in the last 25 years.

“So although we still want you to count our feathered friends during the hour, as they are a brilliant indicator of the health of our countryside, we also want to hear if you have ever seen other wildlife such as badgers, squirrels or frogs in your garden or local park.

“It really is a great chance to become a wildlife detective and help build a picture of how important our gardens are for giving a nature a home.”

The RSPB should hang their heads in shame! Not a lot of people know this, but The RSPB support the deployment of (bird mincing) wind turbines. This is fact - research this! There is strong observational evidence that wind turbines kill birds and there are many legal cases under way in The U.S and Canada with wind farm operators facing prosecution for killing rare/endangered birds (google this - it's true!)

Also, The RSPB are strongly against Fracking! (which is absolute zero risk to bird wildlife), but they as an organisation support Wind Farms.

The RSPB is a political organisation which has lost it's purpose! They disgust me and I would encourage others to boycott whilst they continue to pursue their political "motivations" which are having a negative impact on bird wildlife!

I would like to comment on the headline "RSPB asks what you've got in your garden" well in my garden there are lots of bin bags with rubbish in because of the idiotic waste collection system over the Christmas period, CWAC know that people like myself will do there job for them by going to the tip with my waste.
