For the past 41 years hundreds of thousands of people have volunteered an hour of their time to help the RSPB learn more about the birds that live in our gardens and local green spaces.

In that time almost 140 million birds have been counted, helping the RSPB to highlight some dramatic declines and increases in garden birds.

This year’s event takes place on 25, 26 and 27 January 2020. The public is asked to spend just one hour watching and recording the birds in their garden or local green space, then send their results to the RSPB. Close to half-a-million people join in the Birdwatch every year.
