The 2012 Big Garden Birdwatch!

Your garden birds rely on you to provide them with a constant supply of food and water to get them through the winter. Summer’s bounty has deminished and birds often struggle to survive this time of year. Providing them with food and nesting sites is essential for their survival and to ensure your garden birds successfully produce a new generation next spring.

Get involved with RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch on the 28th and 29th of January and help the charity keep track of bird populations in the UK. Take an hour to wrap up warm and sit back in your garden to record the highest number of each species seen at one time. It’s your chance to find out which bird top’s this year’s list.

If you want to really get involved, check out RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch events here! They offer bird walks throughout England and even a bird talk and meal.

Use feed to invite birds into your garden this month; it’ll make your bird watching hour as exciting as possible and really make the difference to your garden birds! Welcome birds into your garden with feed from Jersey Plants Direct! We aim to give you the best value bird feed with free delivery within 10 days of receipt of order.

If you are a teacher, student or parent why not suggest that your local school takes part in the Big School Birdwatch from the 16th-30th January. Simply register here to take part, enter results and create white-board friendly interactive charts. There’s even a chance to win prizes for your school in RSPB’s free draw.
