25-01-2013 : TAKE PART IN THE BIG GARDEN BIRDWATCH WHILST ON YOUR CANAL BOAT HOLIDAY

Over this coming weekend, 26th and 27th January 2013, the RSPB is asking the public to get involved in The Big Garden Birdwatch, the world's largest wildlife survey.

The Big Garden Birdwatch has grown into fun for all the family and all you need to do is count the birds in your garden or a local park for one hour then tell them what you see.

The RSPB say not to worry if you do not have a garden as you can do your birdwatch anywhere.

One of the more unusual places that people have spent an hour taking part in the Big Garden Birdwatch is from a Canal Boat.

So if you are on a Canal Boat Holiday this weekend take an hour out, help the RSPB and take part in the Big Garden Birdwatch.

You can take the time on your Canal Boat Holiday and just stop and listen to the wonderful birdsong along the canal banks.

Listen for an owl hooting or for a nightingale singing at dusk or at first light listen for blackbirds, robins and wrens as the dawn chorus sounds the start of morning.

You may be in a privileged to hear the cry of the buzzards or kestrels as the swoop over farmland hunting for food.

The canals are easily accessible and free to explore and they are the ideal destination for nature lovers.

As you gentle cruise along the canals on your Canal Boat Holiday you will get back to nature and have a chance to see the bird life close up.

Ducks and swans feed on the weeds that float in the canal and the reeds growing at the edge provides shelter for the kingfishers.

As you are cruising along on your Canal Boat Holiday feed the moorhens and swans as they follow you hoping for a tasty treat.
