Big Garden Birdwatch 2017 weather forecast

A waxwing bird

Sat 28 JanMon 30 Jan 2017

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 38th year – is the world's largest garden wildlife survey. 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 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 January, the Society is suggesting that people should look out for scarcer birds, in particular waxwings (pictured), which may visit gardens looking for food.

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