Just one hour every year, for the last 40 years, has made the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch the largest garden wildlife citizen science project. During that time, hundreds of thousands of people have volunteered their time providing the RSPB with over 8 million hours of monitoring garden birds.

To mark the event, the RSPB is encouraging participants to share their Big Garden Birdwatch stories.

This year’s event takes place on 26, 27 and 28 January 2019. Spend just one hour watching and recording the birds in your garden or local green space, then send your results to the RSPB. Over the last 40 years, 130 million birds have been counted giving the RSPB an astonishing amount of insight into how our wildlife is faring.
