BTO Garden BirdWatch

Sunday, April 5th 2020

Stay connected to nature, learn about your garden wildlife and contribute to important scientific research without leaving your home. The BTO (British Trust for Ornithology) is giving everyone free access to BTO Garden BirdWatch during the COVID-19 lockdown. You can help with research into garden wildlife by joining the Garden BirdWatch community.

The BTO has run the year-round Garden BirdWatch scheme since 1995, and thousands of people across the UK contribute their sightings each week.

Gardens are really important habitats for wildlife, but we need to understand how and why populations of garden birds and other wildlife are changing, and how we can help them.

You can help by keeping a simple list and recording which species visit each week, helping the BTO to learn about how wildlife uses the food, shelter and other resources in our gardens.

The more we can understand about how birds and animals use our gardens, the more we can improve our cities, towns, villages and individual gardens for wildlife. Thank you to Tim for today's photographs!
