Big Garden Birdwatch
You can choose any hour between 29 and 31 January. So whether you’re an early bird or a night owl, you can still take part.
Count the birds you see in your garden or from your balcony*. Ignore any birds that are still in flight. To avoid double-counting, just record the highest number of each bird species you see at any one time – not a running total.
*This year our advice is to take part in the safety of your own home. This could include a birdwatch from your window if you overlook a green space or courtyard.
Submit your results online: You can submit your results online from 29 January until 19 February.
