Big Garden Birdwatch

This weekend is the Big Garden Birdwatch and it is so easy and so important that we take part. As RSPB says:

“Count the wildlife that’s counting on you, 28-30 January. Big Garden Birdwatch is here – be part of the world’s biggest wildlife survey.”

It only takes an hour and you record every bird that visits your feeders. At the end you submit your results online to RSPB with the highest number of any birds that visited your garden in that hour. It helps you and the RSPB build a picture of what birds are visiting your garden all across the UK. You can also notify them if you had non-bird visitors too! You may have had a bumbling badger visit!

I am going to stock up on food and bird treats today to participate tomorrow.

  1. I used to see a variety of tits quite regulay from my kitchen window, which overlooked the back garden. My best chance of success was usually to watch first thing in the morning or last thing in the evening, with a good pair of binoculars. I would have the lights off and keep ever so sill. Sometimes I even managed to film my sightings .

    Sadly however, my neighbour has now installed blinds.
