Big Garden Birdwatch returns on 24/25 January

The RSPB’s annual Big Garden Birdwatch is back on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 January 2015, giving people across the UK the chance to be part of the world’s biggest wildlife survey.

Around half a million people across the UK took part in 2014 and between them counted more than seven million birds.

The wildlife survey, now in its 36th year, provides the RSPB with an important snapshot of garden bird populations in winter and has helped to highlight some dramatic declines in UK garden birds over the last three decades years.

Everyone can join in by spending just one hour at any time over Big Garden Birdwatch weekend noting the highest number of each bird species seen in their gardens or local park at any one time then submitting the results to the RSPB.

Schoolchildren and teachers will be doing the same in their school grounds as part of Big Schools’ Birdwatch from 5 January – 13 February.

Tony Whitehead, speaking for the RSPB in the South West says; ‘No matter where people take part, whether at home with the family, with classmates at school or with friends in a local park, we’re joining forces to gather vital information about some of our most familiar garden birds.

“It’s a great way to get to know the creatures that live around us, and that’s especially important for children. Garden birds can often be a child’s first encounter with wildlife and can spark a lifelong interest in nature.”

For the second year running the RSPB is also asking participants to log the other wildlife they see in their outside spaces, too, to help the charity build an overall picture of how important our gardens are for giving nature a home.
