RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch 2013

argylesock says… I hesitated to reblog Karen’s words here, because I’ve never got organised to do the Big Garden Birdwatch. But perhaps this year I will. If you’re in Britain perhaps you will.

Watch the birds visiting your garden or local park on the weekend of 26 – 27 January 2013 and submit your sightings (bird sighting form will be open from the birdwatch weekend until 15 February 2013) to the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch. I take part every year, it’s very easy and only takes an hour of your time! http://www.rspb.org.uk/birdwatch/

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.

  1. Here in the States we enjoy an annual custom called “Christmas Bird Count” in which we count birds in one locale in one day. The custom originated in the days of settlement when the settlers would go out on Christmas Day with guns and spirits and see who could kill the most birds. Charming. Anyway, we rather enjoy the modern custom of merely looking at our feathered friends.
