To help monitor how UK birds are faring in the face of this nature and climate emergency, the RSPB have launched the Great British Bird Watch, a citizen project to help gather data from across the UK. Simply count the birds that you see from your garden, balcony or local park between 27th – 29th January for an hour, then go online and report your findings. The event is free and available for everyone to take part in. For more information on how to prepare for the weekend and how to sign up, visit the RSPB website here.
