Five reasons you should take part in the Big Garden Birdwatch

January 20, 2016

The RSPB (The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) holds the Big Garden Birdwatch every year on the weekend of 27-29 Jan with more than half a million people taking part. You and your children could join them this year!

The RSPB has said of the event: “Big Garden Birdwatch will bring you closer to nature. It takes just an hour and is suitable for all ages and abilities”.

The team at Miles Kelly thinks we should all take part in the Big Garden Birdwatch this year because:

1. It is a chance to try something different
2. Children are encouraged to get outdoors
3. Bird spotting is a fun challenge that children will enjoy
4. There’s time to bond with the family and work as a team
5. It’s a rewarding educational experience to learn more about our wildlife

To help you get involved we are giving away a FREE printable bird-spotting poster for you and your children to record your findings. Download it here.

 

 

 

 

 

Most of us tend to hibernate during these cold winter days but with lots of layers to keep warm, combined with a sense of purpose, this activity gets the family using their garden and getting some well-needed fresh air. There is also the sense of mystery, not knowing what you may find and enjoying learning about different species you never knew about before whilst helping to identify potential endangered bird species.
