Get to know the birds that are most common in British gardens! 

We are all spending more time in our own garden and local green spaces. The last two years have been a fabulous opportunity to get to know more about birds that are common in our garden and how we can help and support them.

 

These pages are designed to help anyone who is interested in improving their knowledge of British garden birds. 

 

With the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch at the end of January, it's the best time to start getting to know and recognise your garden visitors. The activities below can get you started and then practise your ID skills on the 4 live cams in my garden.

Why Watch birds?

Filmed as part of a piece I did with Chris Packham, this short film shows why watching the birds is so important to me!
