Take part in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch

The SSL supports the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch which will be taking place from Friday 26th to Monday 28th January 2024.

Join the world’s largest garden wildlife survey and help build a picture of how UK garden birds are faring.

To take part, follow the simple steps below:

An infographic of a calendar with the words 'Choose an hour between 26 and 28 January.' An infographic of birds feeding from bird feeders with the words 'Only record the birds that land in your patch' under it. An infographic of birds and a timer with the words 'Record the highest number of each bird species you see at any one time' under it.

To find out more go to the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch homepage.

An infographic of a robin. Next to the robin are the words 'RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch Book Display'

To help you brush up on your bird spotting skills and learn how to encourage birds into your garden, we’ve created a book display. Find the display around the corner from our issue desk, on top of the new journals display area.

Feel free to take a book and read it in the library but please return to the display after use.
