Win binoculars and birdfeeding kits

This week's treat offers everything you need to get your pupils switched on to birdwatching.

We have three prizes of a pair of FP1 binoculars from Olympus, worth pound;90, as featured on our cover, and an RSPB birdfeeding kit for children worth Pounds 40. The FP1s are lightweight, compact binoculars with 8x magnification, multi-coated lenses and adjustable eyepieces for comfort.

The RSPB birdfeeding kit includes a seed feeder, window feeder, four-litre pack of high-energy bird food, a nestbox, the RSPB Children's Guide to Birdwatching and Discover Birds at School booklets, an A1 colour identification poster, school bird hide poster and a garden bird soft toy.

October 29 is the RSPB's Feed the Birds Day and the society is urging everyone to start feeding the birds in their garden or school grounds. For tips on how to care for garden birds and activities for children, visit the RSPB website www.rspb.org.ukfeedthebirds.
