Big Garden Birdwatch this weekend

In 2007, over 400,000 people took part in the Big Garden Birdwatch and there will probably be even more this year. It’s in a good cause, and provides masses of raw data for analysis, and so I’m fully supportive of the Northern Ireland deputy First Minister, Sinn Féin’s Martin McGuinness, MP, MLA, endorsement of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds now-annual, and vital, snapshot of the UK’s birds each winter – after all, it’s open to everyone in the UK. And if it isn’t possible for him, personally, to find the time over the weekend to complete his survey form I’m sure he’ll be encouraging his party colleagues to do so.. although, as of 2.30pm 3.30pm, the Sinn Féin website doesn’t seem to have carried his statement..
