Bird song takeover for businesses
On 17 October, we brought bird song to millions across the UK. From railway stations to high street retail brands, businesses big and small joined us for the special day.
What is the bird song takeover?
We want to bring bird song to five million people via workplaces, public spaces and homes. It’s a day to let policy makers know that we don’t want bird song to disappear.
