Each year the RSPB have a Big Garden Bird Watch when they ask people to take an hour and count the birds in their garden or local park. We have done this for a couple of years now and it’s a really nice way to find out a little more about birds in your garden and spend a relaxing hour watching the birds. To be fair, in my house it is quite an exciting hour of us all trying to identify and count at the same time!
Here’s what you need to do:
- Choose a time of day that’s convenient for you. You’ll probably see more birds if you do it early in the morning, but any time of day you can do it is useful for us. The event takes place over three days: Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
- Make yourself comfortable and watch the birds for an hour.
- Record the highest number of each bird species that you see at any one time. Then answer the other questions about other wildlife species that visit your garden during the year. Don’t worry if you don’t see anything over the hour, as it’s still really useful information for us.
- Bring your completed form to Brownies and we will send them to the RSPB all together.
Enjoy and happy bird watching.
