The RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch is the world’s biggest bird survey and regularly attracts nearly half a million participants. The records from people counting birds in their gardens provides a vital snapshot of the UK’s birds each winter. The RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch 2017 will take place over the weekend of the 28th and 29th January 2017.
To take part in the Big Garden Birdwatch simply spend an hour watching the birds in your garden or local park over the weekend.
Count the highest number of bird species you see at the same time. You can use pen and paper or the RSPB’s online counting tool.
Don’t count the total over the hour as you may get the same birds visiting more than once.
Submit the results to The RSPB via their website. You must register with the RSPB for a free information pack to enable you can take part.
