Big Garden Birdwatch

Get Involved in the Big Garden Birdwatch with Weston Sawmill

Discover the full beauty of your garden by supporting the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch with Weston Sawmill.

We specialise in transforming the look of gardens right across Shropshire and Staffordshire with our high-quality timber; whilst being inclusive to all garden wildlife.

For our latest blog, we are going to share everything you need to know about this fantastic campaign.

How to Take Part in the Big Garden Birdwatch

Taking an hour out of your day to sit back, relax and spend some time with the birds, is the perfect way to spend an afternoon.
Here is a breakdown of how to take part in the Big Garden Birdwatch

  • Watch the birds for one hour from 25th January in either your garden or local park.
  • Start counting the birds that land in your garden or park and take note of the different species. Avoid double counting the same species that land at different times over the hour.
  • Finally, you can submit your results online at the RSPB website up until 16th February.

The Big Garden Birdwatch is another great opportunity to see other wildlife in your garden such as hedgehogs and frogs.

The campaign has been going for over 40 years with over half a million people regularly taking part, allowing the RSPB to monitor trends and help them understand the behaviour of our birds.

The scientific data compiled from the survey are compared year-on-year with the results extremely valuable to their scientists; creating a snapshot of bird numbers across the UK.
