Every year thousands of people take part in the RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch.
This year the survey of our garden visitors take place over the weekend of 29th to 31st of January.
All that is required is that for one hour on one of those dates you note down the birds that visit your garden. If you don’t have a garden you can use your balcony or the local park.

There’s a lot of helpful information and a pack which you can download.
The survey is important. not only because it involves so many people in a massive community response, but because it records how many birds, their species and other wildlife that live around us. It has been going on for so long it also can indicate where some birds are falling in numbers and others doing much better.
