RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch
January 25 @ 9:00 am - January 27 @ 4:00 pm
The Big Garden Birdwatch is the world’s largest wildlife survey and it is easy to take part. It gives the charity a picture of how our wildlife is doing. If you have an hour to spare to watch and record the birds from your garden, balcony or a local green space and then send the information to the RSPB.
So, sit back, relax and start counting!
Watch the birds for one hour. Choose an hour between 25th and 27th January.
Only count the birds that land – do not count those that are flying over. The same birds may land more than once, so you can avoid double counting by recording the highest number of each bird species you see at any one time – not the total number you count over the hour.
Every count is important. Don’t worry if you don’t see anything. Observing which birds aren’t around is as important as seeing the ones that are. You can submit your findings online at www.rspb.org.uk/birdwatch from 25th January until 16th February. If you prefer to send your results by post then you can download a form from the aforementioned website; postal results should be with them by 11th February.
