Get involved with Big Garden Birdwatch.

STAFF at Coventry Garden Centre are backing the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds' (RSPB) latest campaign to record sightings of gardeners' feathered friends.

And the team at the garden centre, in Brownshill Green Road, is offering bird lovers the chance to get involved with the Big Garden Birdwatch on Saturday, January 28 and Sunday, January 29. Manager Richard Durrant said: "The weekend is designed to help raise awareness of the RSPB and its important conservation work. The charity is inviting people to get involved in the world's biggest bird survey, which provides the organisation with a vital snapshot of the UK's bird population.

"Anyone can join in by visiting www.RSPB. org.uk and downloading a spotting form. We are also offering people the chance to pick up free bird spotting charts from the garden centre and will be recording our sightings on site during the weekend too."

Last year more than 600,000 people took part, counting more than 10 million birds.
