Post Lockdown Garden Birdwatch


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. This has 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.
