So, How Do You Take Part?
Well, its wonderfully simple. On the weekend of January 30-31, choose when you want to start, make yourself comfy and watch the birds for an hour. You could watch them from your window, or sitting in the garden. Maybe you could put a tent in the garden and watch from inside or maybe even convert your shed into a bird hide for the weekend?!
Record the highest number of each bird species you see at any one time.
When the hour has finished record your results on the survey form online. Alternatively you could use the live bird counter at rspb.org.uk/birdwatch. You can access this on your laptop, tablet or phone.
You could also request a Big Garden Birdwatch Information Pack full of useful information, an ID chart, widow stickers and more.
