Big Garden Birdwatch 2020

Big Garden Birdwatch 2020

Watch the birdie! Count the birds that land in your garden or local park and you could help the RSPB’s annual survey.

The RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch is scheduled for January 25-27, 2020, with up to half a million people expected to watch and count their garden birds.

To take part in the Big Garden Birdwatch 2020 all you need to do is watch the birds in your garden or local park for one hour at some point over the three days, counting only the birds that land and then reporting the highest number of each bird species seen at any one time.


This year the charity is also encouraging participants to share their Big Garden Birdwatch and will showcase some of the best examples of how people take part, from building their own birdwatching den to baking wildlife-themed cakes and making bird feeders.

The parallel event, RSPB Big Schools’ Birdwatch, takes place during the first half of spring term (January 6 – February 21, 2020). Further information can be found at
