RSPB - THE BIG GARDEN BIRDWATCH 2021
The Big Garden Bird Watch is taking place this weekend. It's a fantastic opportunity to spend a hour, looking out of your window with a hot chocolate, counting how many different types of birds you can see!
You can sign up for free here.
Why not head on over to our Arts and Design Technology page, for instructions on how to make a bird feeder at home.
Here is a link to a live stream of the RSBP's feeder station.
Dates: 29-31 January
Duration: 1 hour
Location: Your garden or balcony
- 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 us 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 our 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 online at rspb.org.uk/birdwatch from 29 January until 19 February.
- Every count is important so, if you don’t see anything, please still submit your result. Finding out which birds don’t visit your area is as important as understanding those which do!
See resources below for printable bird ID sheets to help you.
