This gorgeous male Sparrowhawk flew into the garden to remind us that the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch is this weekend. The biggest citizen-science scheme in the world, if you put it in your search engine you will find simple instructions, a bird guide and a form so all you have to do is watch and record  birds in your garden, park etc for any hour over the weekend. We have been lucky to have an astonishing 24 species visit our Sheffield city garden this week(we also do the BTO weekly recording so we look most days) but the RSPB are just as interested in low recordings- it is a survey to monitor bird trends. Conditions: Rain, cloud and some sun. Temperature: Max 7- Min 1C.
