Big Garden Birdwatch Weekend
8:39am 24th January 2015
We're being asked to take part in the world's biggest wildlife survey.
As part of the Big Garden Birdwatch this weekend, RSPB Radipole Lake nature reserve in Weymouth is hosting a series of special events.
Dan Bartlett, Senior Visitor Centre Assistant said, "Come on down to Radipole Lake nature reserve for an easy stroll around this stunning wildlife site, comical bearded tits, majestic marsh harriers, who knows what we might see."
Today (24th January) from 11am to 2pm you can find out how to make a mini-garden out of natural materials and tomorrow (25th January) there are free guided tours around the lake from 10:30am to 1:30pm.
The RSPB hopes to use the data to build an overall picture of how important our gardens are for all types of wildlife and tailor its advice so people can help their wild visitors find a home, feed and breed successfully.
The Big Garden Birdwatch is part of the RSPB's Giving Nature a Home campaign, aimed at tackling the housing crisis facing the UK's threatened wildlife.
