PEOPLE aiming to take part in a national birdwatch event can get some tips on attracting feathered friends to their garden — as well as getting to know what they are spotting.
Two events at the RSPB’s Old Moor nature reserve in Manvers aim to provide help for nature lovers taking part in the charity’s 39th Big Garden Birdwatch from January 27 to 29, when people are asked to record what they see during one hour.
On Saturday, January 20, and Sunday, January 21, people can call in at the reserve on Manvers Way from 11am to 3.30pm for a bird feeder-making workshop.
Each feeder will cost £2 and booking is not required.
On Saturday, January 27, and Sunday, January 28, people can call at the reserve from 10am to 3.30pm to get tips on bird identification to help with taking part in Big Garden Birdwatch at home.
The event is free and no booking is needed.
Any non-RSPB members who choose to go round the reserve will have to pay the usual entrance fee on both weekends.
