Big Garden Birdwatch
Take part in Big Garden Birdwatch and contribute to the world’s largest wildlife survey! Count birds for an hour and tell us what you see.
Hundreds of thousands of people from across the UK took part in this year's event by counting the birds in their gardens. They also made a record of the other wildlife they spotted throughout the year.
If you've not sent in your results yet, there's still time. You've got until 22 February to tell us what you saw and help provide a vital snapshot of UK nature.
