Big Garden Birdwatch 2019

A Great Tit

Sat 26 JanMon 28 Jan 2019

More than half a million people are expected to watch and count garden birds across the UK in this event organised by the RSPB.

The event – now in its 40th year – is the world's largest garden wildlife survey. Over 3 days people are encouraged to spend one hour watching and recording the birds in their garden or local public space. The results are then collated by the RSPB.

Last year over eight millions birds were seen, with the house sparrow the most frequently-recorded species. But with cold weather affecting some parts of the UK during the last weekend of January, the Society is suggesting that people should look out for scarcer birds which may visit gardens looking for food.

Check your local weather forecast for the best time to take part in the Big Garden Birdwatch. 

For details of how to take part please visit the RSPB official website.
