Join us to watch the birdies

TODMORDEN Riverside Improvement Group (TRIG) will be taking part in the RSPB’s Big Garden Bird Watch this weekend.

They will meet near the Rose Street footbridge at the back of Todmorden Market Hall at 2pm on Sunday, January 29, and anyone is welcome to join them.

“Forms to record the birds that we see over an hour will be available and when we have finished we will send these off to the RSPB,” said Penny Bennett, of TRIG. “We have been feeding the birds on Tipside through the winter months and there are often considerable numbers of some species. Don’t worry if you are not very sure of your identification, we will have binoculars and reference books with us to help you.”

Help will be welcome at the next TRIG river side work party on Monday, February 6 (meet same place 10.30 am, gloves, litter picks and bags provided). For details, contact Penny on 01706 812480.
