More than 585,000 people across the country took part in this year’s RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, spending an hour over the weekend of January 24 and 25, watching their gardens and recording any feathered friends which made a flying visit - close to a 100,000 increase on 2014.

In Lancashire, over 13,000 people took part, helping to contribute to the national results.

Overall more than eight-and-a-half million birds were spotted, making it another bumper year for the Birdwatch.
