Some top tips
When it comes to your Big Garden Birdwatch, it’s the little details that count. While everyone follows the same rules (this is what makes the results scientifically valid) you can make the experience your own, with a bit of imagination.
Share the experience
Even though it might feel peaceful and quiet in your home, watching the blue tits in your garden flit from the cherry tree to the feeder, remember you’re doing it with half a million people. Make your Big Garden Birdwatch even more fun by finding out what other people are up to, and sharing your own experiences and preparations. Just use #BigGardenBirdwatch on social media and you’ll find everyone chatting. They're there right now in fact, go look!
