All day

Big Garden Birdwatch is the UK’s largest garden wildlife survey. It’s been running since 1979, and every year, around 700,000 people take part. It takes place over the last weekend in January each year. In 2024, Big Garden Birdwatch will be back on the 26 to 28 January. We’re hoping it’ll be the biggest Birdwatch yet.

Come back in mid-December and register to take part in the world's largest garden wildlife survey. In 2023, over half a million people took part. This year, you could be one of them!

Once you register, we'll keep you updated with top tips on how to get ready for your best birdwatch ever.

On the weekend of the Big Garden Birdwatch itself, taking part couldn't be simpler. You just spend an hour watching the birds in your garden, from your balcony or in your local park, and tell us what you've seen. If you see very few birds or none at all, that's also really useful information for us, so please do let us know.
