Big Garden Birdwatch

On 25th – 27th January it will be the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch.

The Big Garden Birdwatch is a survey that helps the RSPB find out about the birds that are visiting gardens and how to help them.

You spend one hour watching the birds in your garden and you count the birds that land in your garden.

Some of the birds that visit my garden are blue tits, blackbirds, magpies, house sparrows, starlings, long tailed tits, robins, wood pigeons, great tits, goldfinches and dunnocks.

I help the birds in my garden by giving them bird food. I feed them fat balls, suet pellets, bird seed and sunflower hearts.

Last week I made some bird feeders using bird seed mixed with lard.

You can do the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch too!

  1. Grandma has filled the feeders you gave us with a mixture of lard, niger seeds, mealworms and fruity nibbles. The birds seem to enjoy the food we put out for them.


  2. The birds are sure to enjoy the feeders you have made. I bet you will get lots of birds maybe too many to count. We find long tail tits difficult because so many come all together I imagine starlings might be as hard but they don’t visit us. You will have a busy hour good luck enjoy.
