Promotional bags will be given out to families attending a birdwatching event in Newmarket later this month.

The organisers of the day, the RSPB, are to make effective use of promotional items for the free day at a nature reserve in Lakenheath.

Designed to commemorate the anniversary of the charity’s Big Garden Birdwatch, the free event will see a range of indoor and outdoor activities taking place all aimed at getting people more interested in birdwatching.

Guests at the drop-in event on Sunday, January 22, will also get guidance on identifying some common garden visitors, with all the youngsters taking part receiving a goody bag.

David White, information officer at the reserve, told Cambridge News: “This event is a great way to learn more about the Big Garden Birdwatch.

“You can learn how to take part and even to identify some of those pesky birds you only ever seem to get glimpses of.”
