RSPB online account FAQs
Get help logging into your RSPB online account with our FAQs.
I’m a member, why don’t I have an account?
When you become a member you don’t automatically get a RSPB online account. But registering for one is quick and easy, just fill in the RSPB online form.
I’m a member, how do I update my address/bank details?
If you have a RSPB online account, you can update your contact details (address, email, mobile and telephone numbers) by logging in to that account.
If you don’t have an existing RSPB online account or want to make any other changes to your membership, such as adding or removing members or updating Direct Debit details, call our Supporter Services team on 01767 693680 or email email@example.com.
I can’t register/submit results for Big Garden Birdwatch from my account
The best place to register/submit your Big Garden Birdwatch results is from our main Big Garden Birdwatch page.
I need help with Big Garden Birdwatch
You can sign up and take part in Big Garden Birdwatch every January from our main Big Garden Birdwatch page.
This year, why not use our fully digital journey? You can download the counting chart once you've signed up from our main Big Garden Birdwatch page. If you can't get onto the site over the big weekend, or if it's running slowly, come back to tell us what you’ve seen later - even if your usual visitors didn’t turn up.
You can also email our dedicated Big Garden Birdwatch team over the big weekend at firstname.lastname@example.org
Want to take part as a group?
For youth groups such as scouts, can get involved as part of our Big Schools Birdwatch. For adult and community groups, please collate your results and send them to us in one form from the main Big Garden Birdwatch page.
I received my confirmation email, but the link doesn't work?
The confirmation link will expire after two hours, the link will open a page stating the link has expired, please request a new link from that page. If the link does not open a webpage, please go to the login page and attempt to login, and you will be given the option to request a new confirmation email.
I need to request a new confirmation email/I don’t know if I have an account
To request a new confirmation email, go to the login page and login with your details. If your account needs confirming you will be offered to resend the confirmation email.
If you are unsure if you have an account, go to the login page and click the password reset link and submit your email address for your account.
You’ll then get an email letting you reset your password or telling you that there is no account registered under your email address yet.
To set up a RSPB online account and take part in activities, go to our register page.
If you think you may have another account and you wish to log in to this, try logging into our community page.
We understand this can be a bit confusing so we’re currently working on developing a new system where only one account is needed for all of the areas of our website. Please bear with us in the meantime.
I’m locked out of my account
I want to update my email address
You can update your email address from your profile page. Once you're logged in, click 'Account' at the top of the page to go to your profile page, then update your email address under the personal details tab.
I have an account but I can't log in/it says I don't have one
If you haven't logged into your account in two years, it's likely that it has expired. You can set up a new one here.
If you have a shopping or community account you will still need to register for a main site account as they are separate.
