A North Somerset nature group is asking for households to help out with a wildlife survey over the festive period.

The Yatton and Congresbury Wildlife Action Group (YACWAG) is launching its 13th annual bird survey today (Monday).

People are asked to keep a tally of the number of birds they see land, or fly over, their gardens.

It will run from Christmas Eve until January 2.

The survey allows YACWAG to keep track of bird populations and analyse any trends.

The previous 12 years have seen blackbirds come out on top.

Entrants who complete a form will be put into a prize draw and the results of the survey will be published online.

A bird survey can be downloaded from www.yacwag.org.uk, collected from libraries in Yatton and Congresbury or from Win Lowman on 01934 833596.
