Free entry to nature reserve for the bird watch weekend for every reader!

IT’S nearly time for the world’s biggest garden wildlife survey – and we’re asking local people to take part in the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch, running January 28, 29 and 30.

To help prepare for the Big Garden Birdwatch, RSPB Old Moor in Wombwell is offering you free entry to the reserve for the Birdwatch weekend. Friendly staff and  volunteers at the reserve can help you identify your garden visitors, give you advice on feeding garden birds and help you choose the best food and feeders for them. After a wander around the reserve, why not treat yourself to a hot drink and a snack in our welcoming cafe?

The public are asked to spend just one hour watching and recording the birds and other wildlife in their garden or local public space, then send their results to the RSPB. As the world’s largest garden wildlife survey, now in its 38th year, more than half a million people are expected to take part in 2017.

In response to many requests over the years, and for the first time in its history, people will also be able to take part on the Monday, extending the birdwatch to three days. It is hoped this will allow even more people to spend an hour counting the birds in their park or garden, adding to the snapshot of how they are doing.


Terms and Conditions:

Free entry for two adults or one family only per voucher.

Valid Saturday, January 28 to Monday, January 30 inclusive.

No photocopies accepted.
