The Big Garden Birdwatch
Saturday, 24 January 2015 11am – 3.30pm
Location: Horniman Gardens Pavilion
About this event
Every January the RSPB encourage a nationwide bird count so we can check the number and diversity of birds in our parks and gardens. Come and join us at the Horniman for a day celebrating bird life and finding out what species are in our gardens. Help us with our Horniman Gardens bird survey, make a bird feeder, make a bird mobile and explore some of our bird taxidermy.
The RSPB will be on hand to help identify birds, and answer questions and bird expert David Darrell–Lambert from Bird Brain UK will be leading walks and talks all about the birds around our gardens.
