The Big Garden Bird Watch

Published: Thursday 23rd Jan 2014

Take part in the RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch over this weekend 25th-26th January.

Here’s how:

Watch and record the number of birds in your garden or nearby green space for an hour

Submit the results


Bird populations are a great indicator of the health of the countryside. That’s why it’s so important to take part in surveys like the Big Garden Bird Watch to keep an eye on the ups and downs of the wildlife where we live.

The more people involved, the more we can learn. Last year 590,000 people took part and 8.2 million birds were counted.

So grab a cuppa and together we can all help to give nature a home. Robin
