Bring nature to you
We might not be able to get together with loved ones at the moment, but you can make plans with friends and family to take part in the world’s largest wildlife survey, all from the comfort of your own homes.
Taking part is easy
Spend an hour counting the birds you see in your garden or from your balcony, then tell us what you saw. It really is that simple!
Big Garden Birdwatch LIVE
New this year!
Our experts from across the UK will be bringing you photos, footage and facts about the birds they see, as well as answering any questions you may have. Plus, there’ll be live quizzes, and familiar faces throughout the weekend – all set to make this the best Birdwatch ever!
Which garden bird are you?
Are you a sociable starling or a happy house sparrow? Or maybe a much-loved robin.
Take the quiz, find out your bird personality and compare with friends and family.
Watch the birdie!
Be sure to take some snaps of the beauties you see during your Birdwatch. Take a look at award-winning photographer Ben Andrew’s advice to help you get the perfect picture every time.
