Saturday 25th January is the RSPB’s National Bird Watch Day for 2014 where thousands of people up and down the country will record what birdlife features in their local environment.
The RSPB is the country’s largest nature conservation charity, protecting threatened birds and wildlife in our towns, coast and countryside – where here they are conducting the largest survey of birdlife with the assistance of computer technology.
Never has it been so easy to collect such data when it’s being crowdsourced – where the Great British public are recording bird activity in their gardens for just one hour and submitting the results via the internet.
I don’t have a garden as such but I have managed to previously capture this family of cormorans in the River Taff. All so peaceful with them stretching their wings and preening themselves.
I have never realised it before but the cormoran (and heron) population must surely be on the increase in Cardiff!
Here are some more photos of them around Cardiff Bay and the River Taff.
