The RSPB’s Big Garden Bird Watch takes please 29 – 31 January.
To take part:
Pick a time
You can choose any hour between 29 and 31 January. So whether you’re an early bird or a night owl, you can still take part.
Tell the RSPB what you see
Count the birds you see in your garden or from your balcony*. Ignore any birds that are still in flight. To avoid double-counting, just record the highest number of each bird species you see at any one time – not a running total.
*This year the advice is to take part in the safety of your own home. This could include a birdwatch from your window if you overlook a green space or courtyard.
Submit your results
Online: You can submit your results at rspb.org.uk/birdwatch from 29 January until 19 February.
By post: If you’d rather send your results by post, you can download a submission form from the RSPB website. Please post your results to us before 15 February.
