Greetings one and all, over the last few months I've been project managing the Big Garden Birdwatch for the RSPB. After years of project managing and short listing for awards, I'm finally working on a project that is close to my heart. From today registration is live ahead of the main event itself on the weekend of 25th/26th Jan. In addition to a new website you can now do the bird count live from your mobile device of choice (you can still do the old fashioned paper count to).

More than happy for you to help support the wondrous work I've been involved with at www.rspb.org.uk/birdwatch ;)

Who does this big garden belong too? Will there be enough seats for everyone? And will there be a barbecue?

You could have the BBQ in Ace's garden. He does after all have four ducks :lol:.

Joking aside, I'm properly chuffed with this, achieved a massive amount in a very short space of time (may have been some cursing on the odd day or two:roll:). A legacy that will be there for quite a while, and set the template for things to come :D.

Daisy, perhaps you can make a note of how many birds your cat can catch in a day for the survey?

Thanks again everyone, genuinely appreciated. Zoob, Alien it doesn't matter how many/few you see, it's essentially a scientific survey to understand the state of our bird wildlife across the country.

Pretty much what @Plaxinator said, there's usually a seagull looking in my window or on our skylight!

It's all about the sunsets & there is an even better view from the (flat) roof - we watched the sun rise after getting back from a Hogmanay party this year with a few shandies. If you look hard @Alien_Chick you can just about see the beach between the buildings in the shot above!
