Thousands of people across Wales have been taking part in the Big Garden Birdwatch over the last couple of days.
The RSPB says the cold weather has made birds head to parks and gardens in their search for food.
Amateur watchers noted the highest number of each species seen in their gardens or local park. Their findings will help experts gather vital information about the species that populate our gardens and parks.
Big Garden Birdwatch helps RSPB 'gather vital data'
The RSPB says this weekend's Big Garden Birdwatch, which is taking place across Wales, will help gather vital information about the species that populate our gardens and parks.
It's a great way to get to know the creatures that live around us, and that's especially important for children. Feeding garden birds can often be a child's first encounter with wildlife and can spark a lifelong interest in nature.
With more sub-zero temperatures on the way, many wild birds are likely to be driven into our parks and gardens in search of food.
This weekend thousands across Wales are expected to join in with the Big Garden Birdwatch - noting the highest number of each species seen in their gardens or local park, then submitting the results to the RSPB.
Last year almost 30,000 people across Wales took part in the watch, counting half a million birds between them.
Two chicks have hatched in an osprey nest in Gwynedd. They're thought to be the first to hatch in Britain this year. The parents returned to Glaslyn, near Porthmadog, in March, after spending winter in Africa.
Local volunteers help to protect the birds from the potential threat of egg collectors. There is a third egg which hasn't yet hatched.
