This weekend (27 to 29 /1/23) is the RSPB big garden birdwatch for 2023.
This is only open FOR UK RESIDENTS.
Give just 1 hour of your time this weekend to take part.
The Big Garden Birdwatch is free to anyone and everyone but the information sent in by people all over the UK helps the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) build up a very accurate register of how the national bird population is doing; what species are flourishing, what are in decline, stable etc.
This birdwatch makes it an ideal family activity at the end of January. Best of all taking part is easy. All you need to do is sign up online to take part and get a free guide.
You don’t even need a garden. You can count birds from a balcony or even your local park.
Which common garden birds will you see?
Participants are asked to spend an hour counting the birds they see and then submit their results online. Also, it’s good idea is to add a bird feeder to your garden. Watch how a wide variety of different types of birds will pop in your garden for a snack!
As you know, we have many wild bird visitors to our garden; and thus have just signed up for this years watch. Looking forward to counting the visitors to the garden, submitting the data to the RSPB and helping to get a good overall view of the status of birds in the UK.
I hope you can sign up and take part also.
