To link in with the topic we have been covering this week – ‘Birds’ we thought you might like to continue your child’s learning and understanding through taking part in the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch is here! We hope you’re looking forward to it. If you’ve never taken part before, it’s really easy to do. Simply go to the RSPB website here, for further information.
Pick a time over Friday 28th to Sunday 30th January, and watch the birds in your garden, from your balcony, or in your local green space for one hour. It doesn’t matter what time you do your Big Garden Birdwatch, but you’re likely to see more birds if you do it first thing in the morning.
Count the highest number of each type of bird you see all at once during the hour, not the total number you see of those birds. For example, if you see two blackbirds and then one blackbird 15 minutes later, your count is two blackbirds.
Let us know what you saw, at https://www.rspb.org.uk/get-involved/activities/birdwatch/.
When you take part in Big Garden Birdwatch, you’re contributing to a snapshot that shows how our garden birds are faring. You might even see something really rare or unusual!
