There's an opportunity for Lancaster bird lovers to join the world’s biggest wildlife survey alongside local volunteers who are participating in the RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch in Williamson Park.

The Lancaster and Morecambe University of the 3rd Age (a voluntary organisation for retired people with no religious or political affiliations) is planning the bird watch which takes place on Sunday 29th January.

All you have to do is observe the birds in the park for an hour and the results will be fed back to the RSPB.

You can make a real difference to the knowledge of garden birds and help to find out which are doing well and which need help.

If you would like to join in, the volunteers will meet you at 10.15am in the Wyresdale Road car park. They're planning to cover several areas of the park and meet up at the café afterwards to compare findings.
