More than half a million people from across the UK are set to take part by counting the birds in their gardens over the weekend of 30-31 January 2016.It just takes an hour of looking into the garden and counting the birds you see. Then sending the information back to the RSPB.
Its great fun and helps them understand if any of our native species are in decline or thriving. Children love it too. They can spot the birds and count them.
I found it best to have a bird table with food and to invite birds into my garden before the event. Unfortunately my bird table was taken down when we rearranged the garden and my neighbour has three cats so I have to be careful how I attract birds.
The RSPB will send you a free pack but if you haven't requested one yet it may not reach you in time so it can be down loaded here. By requesting a pack you also get a £5 discount code for their shop.
You can even fill in the form as you watch on a laptop, tablet or phone at rspb.org.uk/birdwatch
Just some of the birds you may see in your garden.
I'll post what I see next week, but one year I saw nothing! I think the cats were watching too!
Are you going to join in? I'd love to hear how you get on.
