RSPB’s Breakfast Birdwatch

RSPB’s Breakfast Birdwatch

Something to get your day started….the kids might enjoy it too

The RSPB has begun a daily Breakfast Birdwatch, taking place between 8-9am weekdays, at a time when many of us would have been commuting to work, doing the school run, or otherwise unable to enjoy the splendour of nature, from the safety of our homes.

Using #BreakfastBirdwatch on social media, the aim is to create a friendly, supportive and engaged community who are able to share what they can see in their gardens, on their balconies, rooftops and spaces from their own homes, all the while keeping within government guidelines in relation to Covid-19.

It is vital that nature can still be enjoyed by as many people as possible, whether keen birders, parents, children, those self-isolating or anyone else able to join in. Over the coming days and weeks, the RSPB will be helping people to share their wildlife encounters and provide ideas for things you can do for wildlife close to home.

With the arrival of spring, there is so much incredible nature returning, blooming, growing and thriving outside, and while we are in the midst of an unparalleled crisis, we must not forget the power of nature, including how watching nature can be so positive for our mental health and wellbeing.

DIFFERENT THEMES

• The RSPB will have different themes, focussing on different species and helping supporters stay creative with ideas such as drawing and poetry

• As outdoor activity remains limited, and with reserves closed, it is more important than ever to ensure the general public has a powerful connection with the nature on their doorstep.
