BIRDWATCHERS and those keen to learn more about ornithology are invited to an event in Middlesbrough's Stewart Park on Sunday.

The RSPB's Big Bird Watch is taking place from 1pm to 3pm. Those taking part will help rangers count the birds in the park as well as have a chance to try their hand at "birdy" crafts.

Admission is £1, and visitors are asked to meet at the Stewart Park picnic area, near the animal pens.
