More than 90 countries are this weekend participating in the 1997 World Birdwatch.

Events are taking place at Royal Society for the Protection of Birds sites all over Britain. Yesterday, in Battersea Park, children from the South London Montessori School (pictured right with Neil Anderson of the RSPB) received lessons in birdwatching. They were among 23,000 children from 357 schools who were taking part in Schools Birdwatch yesterday.
