The Big Garden Birdwatch will soon be upon us.

This January the world's largest wildlife survey will take place on 25-27 January. The RSPB hope you will join in again with the tens of thousands of Big Garden Birdwatchers planning to take an hour out to relax and enjoy nature.

Just choose an hour any time over the three days and enjoy time with nature counting birds either in your garden or local park.

For over 40 years, the RSPB have been asking you to count the birds in your garden – and you've been brilliant at it.

With over half a million people now regularly taking part, coupled with 40 years worth of data, Big Garden Birdwatch allows the RSPB to monitor trends and helps them understand how birds are doing.

Your results help the RSPB spot problems, but more importantly they are also the first step in putting things right. This is why it's so important that we count garden birds.
