Why not help the RSPB's Big Garden Bird Watch this weekend. Join North York Moors National Park staff at Sutton Bank National Park Centre on Saturday 30th January or Sunday 31st January between 10.30am and 4pm to take part in the Big Garden Bird Watch for RSPB.

It will be an interesting event with wildlife artist Peter Reynolds and Chris Pye of RSPB bempton Cliffs on hand to answer any of your wildlife questions. A great event to get the children interested in birds and wildlife, there will be some children's crafts to do as well. Or take a nature trail in the North York Moors. This event is free.

Why not get a way for the weekend, Valley View Farm Cottages are a great place to take a break and we are only 7 minutes away from Sutton Bank in the car so you can still join in with the Big Garden Bird Watch.
