Daily Echo: Get binoculars at the ready with RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch Get binoculars at the ready with RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch

Wildlife organisation the RSPB is asking Hampshire to count the wildlife that is counting on you.

Their annual event, the Big Garden Birdwatch returns on Saturday, January 25 and Sunday, January 26 and gives the south east a chance to take part in the world’s biggest wildlife survey.

The survey will provide RSPB with a snapshot of garden bird populations in winter and highlight any declines.

RSPB asks you to count the birds in your garden for the survey and will also be open to schools in the Big School’s Birdwatch from Monday, January 20 to Friday, February 14.

Almost 600,000 people across the UK took part in 2013 and between them counted more than 9 million birds. This year for the first time people can use their mobiles and tablets to take part in the survey.

I have only one special bird that was visiting the garden not seen it for 2 weeks now so it might off moved on to new feeding grounds and that is a Fire Crest, for those who do not know how to tell the difference between a Gold Crest and a Fire Crest the two are the same size same markings apart from a Red Strike with in the Yellow Strike on the top of the head off a Fire Crest
