I realised this week that I share an important landmark with RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch. Just as this weekend sees the 30th birthday of the world's biggest bird survey, I too will be celebrating 30 years on the planet.

So, while I may well be enjoying some nightlife this weekend, I'm also planning to join in the Big Garden Birdwatch's birthday bash and take in plenty of wildlife too!

In fact I'll be just one of around 22,000 people in Wales who'll be taking part in this amazing annual event which will provide the RSPB with shedloads of invaluable data about probably any garden bird you can name.

It's really easy to get involved. All you have to do is spend an hour on Saturday 24th or Sunday 25th January surveying the birds in your garden or local park and submit the results to the RSPB. Visit www.rspb.org.uk/birdwatch for more information.

So, what are you waiting for. Get your binoculars at the ready!

In the meantime, why not take up our bird call challenge and see if you can identify two of our most popular garden birds from the sound clips below.
