Get ready for RSPB Birdwatch this weekend

Over this weekend the RSPB would love you, your friends and family, to get involved in Big Garden Birdwatch - the world's largest wildlife survey!

As an activity that started life as something for young members of the RSPB to do in winter, Big Garden Birdwatch has grown into fun for all the family.

All you need to do is count the birds in your garden or a local park for one hour then tell them what you see.

This is your chance to get involved in something that really counts.

Big Garden Birdwatch Events

The RSPB are also running lots of Big Garden Birdwatch events around the UK. Whether you want tips on how to encourage more wildlife to your garden, or simply want to do your birdwatch with others, find an event near you.

Big School's Birdwatch

You can also do the Birdwatch as a school, class or youth group activity called Big Schools' Birdwatch and run every year in January and February Big Schools' Birdwatch is a free activity for schools throughout the UK.

How To Get Involved

All you need to do is download and use their handy counting sheet to keep track of the birds you see during your hour.
