What was the type of bird your class saw most? Was it a blackbird, or perhaps a house sparrow? Let us know by sending in your results. What you saw during the Birdwatch is really important, as it helps us to see how birds are faring in school grounds right around the UK.
Big Schools’ Birdwatch 2022
Due to demand, we’ve had to close our postal registration a little early. But don’t worry if you haven’t been able to sign up for a pack. You can still take part by signing up on our website and downloading survey sheets to help you record your sightings. You’ll also get a certificate when you send in your results. Tell us what you saw by 21 February.
