RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch 2023
Posted on January 04 2023,
Big Garden Birdwatch is fun, free and for everyone. And you don’t need a garden to take part! Counting birds from your balcony, or your local park will play a vital role in helping the RSPB understand how UK birds are doing.
The fact that we’ve lost 38 million birds from UK skies in the last 50 years underlines that nature is in crisis. We see it in our own back gardens with house sparrows struggling and starlings undergoing a severe decline. As a conservation charity, your Birdwatch results help us monitor how our UK birds are faring in the face of the nature and climate emergency. But we can’t do it without your support.
By taking part in Big Garden Birdwatch you, and hundreds of thousands of other like-minded nature lovers, will be taking action to protect our birds for generations to come.
Sign up for your free guide on the RSPB website here and let's look out for birds together on 27-29 January 2023.
Get involved in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch
Counting the birds where you live is fun and fascinating because nature might deliver the unexpected. Apart from cheeky blue tits and busy blackbirds, you never know what might land in your patch in one weekend in January. In previous years black redstart and brambling were spotted.
But nature is in crisis. In the UK we’ve lost 38 million birds over the last 50 years, many back garden favourites amongst them. Take the starling: it has declined so much that it is now on the UK Red List for birds. That’s why yours and every Birdwatch matters, as it helps us monitor how our UK birds are doing in the face of the nature and climate crisis.
