The RSPB will be running its popular Big Garden Birdwatch on 26th – 28th of January.
It is 40 years since the RSPB worked with the programme Blue Peter to involve children in a survey which they could do in their own gardens. Over the years it has grown in importance and is now the world’s largest wildlife study.
In 2018 8 million birds were counted by those taking part. Important data has been collected highlighting species which have suffered a decline over the decades – a 57% drop in house sparrows, a 70% drop in song thrushes and a 80% drop in starlings.
Here are the results from 2018
