The world's largest wildlife survey, helps garden wildlife and couldn't be easier!

With over half a million people now regularly taking part, coupled with over 30 years worth of data, Big Garden Birdwatch allows us to monitor trends and helps us understand how birds are doing. As the format of the survey has stayed the same, the scientific data can be compared year-on-year, making your results very valuable to our scientists.Your results help us spot problems, but more importantly, they are also the first step in putting things right. And this is why it's so important that we count the garden birds.

The more people involved, the more we can learn, so please encourage your family, friends and neighbours to take part.

Follow these three steps:

Watch the birds in your garden or local park for one hour on the weekend of 25 - 26 January 2014. To tie in with our new brand, we've added a few questions about other wildlife, so watch out for those.

Record the highest number of each bird species you see at the same time. Don't count the total over the hour as you may get the same birds visiting more than once. Also, please only count those birds that land within your garden - not flying over.

Once your hour is up, tell us what you've seen.  Even if you didn't get as many birds as you expected, or your 'regulars' didn't appear, do still please let us know. It's all really useful information.
