How to take part in the 40th RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch this weekend…
- Watch the birds for one hour
Choose an hour between 25th and 27th January to watch the birds in your garden or local park.
- Count the most birds that land at once
Only count the birds that land in your garden or park, not those flying over. The same birds may land more than once, so you can avoid double counting by recording the highest number of each bird species you see at any one time – not the total number you count over the hour.
- Submit your results online at rspb.org.uk/birdwatch from 25 January until 16 February.
