The world's biggest bird survey has attracted a record number of participants, according to new figures.I confess that when I read that, I thought (hand on heart, mind's eye a-glisten, mind's voice a-croakin')
The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) said 470,000 people - including 86,000 children - watched their gardens and local parks during the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch on January 28-29. The previous record was held by the 2004 survey with 419,000 people.
Though worlds may change and go awry
While there is still one voice to cry
There'll always be an England
