RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch 2018

Did any of our members take part in the Big Garden Birdwatch which took place over 3 days,  27th -29th January.

With the results, they are able to create a ‘snapshot’ of bird numbers across the UK.

While some changes in bird numbers can seem scary – we’ve lost more than half our house sparrows and some three-quarters of our starlings – it isn’t all doom and gloom. Since Birdwatch began blue tit numbers have risen by 20 per cent and the woodpigeon population has increased by a whopping 800 per cent.  Your results help the RSPB to spot problems, but more importantly, they are also the first step in putting things right. This is why it’s so important that we count garden birds. Remember to submit your results before 18th February.

Don’t forget to help our feathered friends as the weather gets colder.
