Big Garden Birdwatch 2012
Over 100 people joined in the fun at the Big Garden Birdwatch event at Myddelton House Gardens, Enfield, on what turned out to be a beautifully crisp and bright sunny Saturday.
The event kicked off with a spectacular display of 6 buzzards circling above the gardens which fired up seasoned bird enthusiasts and novices alike!
Children made bird hats and apple bird feeders then went on a wildlife trail around the gardens, hanging their feeders on trees and shrubs as they went. Others took their feeders home with them to feed the birds where they live.
