RSPB Big Bird Watch

RSPB Big Bird Watch. A great citizen science event to get involved in.  All information provided on the link to the RSPB site.

On the weekend of the Big Garden Birdwatch itself, taking part couldn't be simpler. You just spend an hour watching the birds in your garden, from your balcony or in your local park, and tell the RSPB what you've seen. If you see very few birds or none at all, that's also really useful information, so please do let the RSPB know.
