What is it? How do I get involved?
The Big Garden Birdwatch takes place at the end of January each year (This year it is from 29th-31st January).
It takes place over three days, so if you’re busy over the weekend or perhaps the weather’s bad, you have the option of a third day!
The Big Garden Birdwatch enables scientists to compare year-on-year data and create a ‘snapshot’ of bird numbers across the UK. It also helps to spot problems with the bird population and helps the RSPB take early action to put things right.
The popularity of the Birdwatch has grown year-on-year and now over 40 years later it is the world’s largest wildlife survey, with around half a million of us regularly taking part.
Joining in with the Big Garden Birdwatch is simple and enjoyable – and a great excuse to watch your garden birds.
Here’s how to get involved…
It really is that simple!
We will have lots of bird care offers on throughout January so be sure to pop in and see how you can encourage even more species into your garden!
