Helping garden wildlife is fun – and it couldn’t be easier. Over the weekend of 26-27 January 2013, the RSPB would love for you, your friends and family, to get involved in Big Garden Birdwatch – the world’s largest wildlife survey!
As an activity that started life as something for RSPB youth membership to do in winter, Big Garden Birdwatch has grown into fun for all the family. All you need to do is count the birds in your garden or a local park for one hour then tell the RSPB what you see.
If you love wildlife and want to do something to help, this is your chance to get involved in something that really counts.
Taking part in Big Garden Birdwatch couldn’t be easier, simply follow these three steps:
1. Watch the birds in your garden or local park for one hour on the weekend of 26 – 27 January 2013.
2. Record the highest number of each bird species you see at the same time. Don’t count the total over the hour as you may get the same birds visiting more than once. Also, please only count those birds that land within your garden – not flying over.
3. Once you hour is up, tell the RSPB what you’ve seen. Even if you didn’t get as many birds as you expected, or your ‘regulars’ didn’t appear, do let the RSPB know. It’s all really useful information. The RSPB form will be open from the Birdwatch weekend until 15 February 2013 for you to tell them what you’ve seen.
