The world’s largest bird watching survey returns on 29th January with the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch.
While we are spending more time than ever indoors, you can still support this important campaign from the safety of your very own garden porch.
Here at Weston Sawmill, we understand the importance of keeping your garden looking spectacular, thanks to our range of decking, fencing and raised flower beds. For this post, we will share more information on the Big Garden Birdwatch.
Everything You Need to Know About the Big Garden Birdwatch
Pick a Time – Choose an hour between 29th and 31st January 2021. This means if you are an early bird or a night owl you will still be able to participate.
Log Your Results – Count the birds you see in your garden or from a balcony (if you live in an apartment or upstairs flat. Make sure you ignore any birds that are already in flight and avoid double-counting. Simply record the highest number of each bird species you see at any one time; don’t keep a running total.
As we have mentioned, this year of the Big Garden Birdwatch will be a little different due to the COVID-19 pandemic, meaning you can also birdwatch from your window if you overlook a green space or courtyard.
Once you have compiled your results, they can be submitted online from 29th January until 19th February. Alternatively, send your results by post using a downloadable submission form, but ensure your results are posted before 15th February.
Finding out which birds do not visit your area is as important as understanding those which do.
