Your garden!

Big Garden Birdwatch 2021

The RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch is taking place between 29th and 31st January. Why not enjoy an hour with nature and discover the wildlife on your doorstep! Taking part is easy - just spend an hour counting the birds you see in your garden, from your balcony or in your local park, then tell the RSPB what you saw. It really is that simple! The great thing is that you never know what birds you might see. Will you enjoy a flock of fluffed-up long-tailed tits, will you be charmed by a group of goldfinches or will a cheeky robin steal the show? Experts from across the UK will be bringing you photos, footage and facts about the birds they see, as well as answering any questions you may have. Plus, there’ll be live quizzes, and familiar faces throughout the weekend – all set to make this the best Birdwatch ever! Be sure to take some snaps of the beauties you see during your Birdwatch. Take a look at award-winning photographer Ben Andrew’s advice to help you get the perfect picture every time. Share your shots on social with #BigGardenBirdwatch. Sign up online at rspb.org.uk for all you need to take part, including your free guide, help with identifying what you see and expert advice on feeding the birds. Plus, you’ll also receive 20% off in the RSPB shop and free delivery.
