Thank you for signing up to Big Garden Birdwatch


You can download your Big Garden Birdwatch Guide below. If you have requested a postal guide, this will be with you before the Birdwatch weekend. As a conservation charity, the RSPB relies on the support of people like you.

All you need to take part

It’s easy to do Big Garden Birdwatch. Simply choose an hour between 28 and 30 January and count the birds that you see in your garden, local park or from your balcony. Then tell us what you saw.

Big Garden Birdwatch guide and ID chart

You can take part in the Birdwatch by simply counting the birds you see and then going online to tell us what you saw. However, we know some people prefer to use a guide. You can download the guide below. Please take a look at the guide before printing, as it may be that you don’t need to print it. Every piece of paper saved is better for nature! If you've requested a guide to be sent to you by post, you'll receive this before the big weekend.
