Now's your chance to be a real Twitterer!

If you love birds and want to help them, then the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch on Jan 30th - 31st is your chance to do something that really counts.

For the past 30 years, the RSPB have been asking their supporters to count the birds in their garden. During this time, more than 3 million hours have been clocked up watching and enjoying the birds that visit our gardens (that's more than 380 years!), and every year, some 6 million birds are spotted by the public.

The Big Garden Birdwatch has never been more important than it is today, with the results from half a million of you (that's 280,00 gardens surveyed, which is rather a lot!) helping the RSPB create a 'snapshot' picture of bird numbers in each region, showing us that some of our birds are disappearing in scary numbers.

We've lost more than half our house sparrows, and three-quarters of our starlings, and your results have certainly helped highlight these dramatic declines.

These surveys, therefore, help us spot problems, but more importantly, are also the first step to help aid a species recovery.

And whats more - The Big Garden Birdwatch is also fun, easy and only takes an hour.

To save time, why not pre register?
