Schools to take part in Bird Watch campaign

THE RSPB’s annual Big Garden Birdwatch is back on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 January giving people in the south east the chance to be part of the World’s biggest wildlife survey.

Almost 600,000 people across the UK took part in 2013 and between them counted more than 9 million birds.

The annual wildlife survey provides the RSPB with an important snapshot of garden bird populations in winter and has helped to highlight some dramatic declines in UK garden birds over the last 30 years.

Schools can also get involved in the Big Schools’ Birdwatch. This year’s schools’ birdwatch will take place from 20 January – February 14, and schools can pick any hour within this period to join in. Find out more at: and for BSBW at:
