Big Gar­den Bird­watch

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Wild At Home - AM


Head to the RSPB web­site to join in with this year’s gar­den wildlife sur­vey. 2019 marks the 40th an­niver­sary of the event, which now sees over one mil­lion peo­ple tak­ing part. By record­ing the num­ber of gar­den birds and other wildlife, it is pos­si­ble to spot dips in pop­u­la­tions but also recog­nise suc­cess sto­ries – blue tit num­bers have in­creased by 20 per cent since the first sur­vey took place in 1979. The for­mat may not have changed in the past 40 years, but with a dig­i­tal ver­sion of the pack now avail­able, those keen to take part can do so with­out the need for pa­per, pen or postage. The per­fect ex­cuse for a bit of wildlife watch­ing from the com­fort of your home.
