Big Garden Bird Watch

National Birdwatch Survey open to all!

Saturday 28th January, 12 noon, Downhills Park – meet at the cafe
Sunday 29th January, 12 Noon, Lordship Rec – meet at the lake

There will be common birds photos/recording sheets for everyone who would like to take part.

Spend just one hour wandering around the parks either singularly or in small groups (BRING THE KIDS) looking for the many different species that live with us in the parks.

We will enter our results afterwards into the RSPB website.

The RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch is in its 33rd year, and last year over 500,000 people took part. It’s already the biggest garden bird survey in the world but the wildlife charity says that the more people take part, the more useful the data is. The RSPB hopes to gather the most comprehensive set of garden bird survey results ever this year. There has been almost a 20 per cent increase in results submitted on the weekend of the survey since last year. And in one hour alone last year, the RSPB received just short of 10,000 forms. They really mean it when they say that every garden counts, and it doesn’t matter if you saw ten different birds species, one bird or none at all – it’s important that they know. These results can help shape the work the RSPB do, and the species and habitats we focus on. If you do take an hour out of your weekend, make sure it counts.

Good luck and enjoy yourselves
