Birdwatchers are invited to a day celebrating the animals at a park.

Twitchers young and old can help with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds’ annual survey of the creature, seeing how many they can spot between 11am and 12pm on Saturday at Lloyd Park off Forest Road in Walthamstow.

Children from the age of three can also help the creatures through the cold winter, when food is scarce, by making birdfeeders between 1pm and 2pm at the park.

The day will then wind down with African and Caribbean cultural stories about birds for children aged from three to ten years old between 2.30pm and 3.30pm in the community room of the Aveling Centre.

Places are limited and will be given to those who arrive first. Under-18s must be accompanied by an adult.
