How did you Big Garden Birdwatch?

Thank you for taking part in Big Garden Birdwatch 2019! Results submission has now closed.

We’ve spoken to many of the inspiring people who regularly take part in the Big Garden Birdwatch. Here’s some of their top tips on how they get involved. Don't forget to tell us how you took part using #BigGardenBirdWatch on social media!


I do mine in the warm

“I put the kettle on and cosy up with a cup of tea, just staring out the window and seeing what comes to visit. When you do the Big Garden Birdwatch you feel like you are in a bubble - there’s nothing else but you and the wildlife. It’s just special.”


I do mine with the early bird

"I like to Big Garden Birdwatch after a big breakfast! Last year I actually took part in a graveyard that’s behind my house. In my opinion, early morning is the best time to Big Garden Birdwatch, but dusk is good too – it’s quite a nice feeling seeing all the birds bed down."


I do mine wherever I find it

"The birds are different in urban environments and there's still plenty to see - such as greenfinches, goldfinches, collared doves and wood pigeons. The Big Garden Birdwatch helps to monitor what wildlife is in abundance and even if you don't see anything, you're still taking part."

Let nature sing

The music of the wild is under threat, but right now we have a historic opportunity to create a future where wildlife can thrive. As politicians renegotiate our relationship with the European Union and decide on the policies that will shape our countryside, we need to speak up for nature.
