The RSPB Big Garden Watch 2020

This weekend is the RSPB Big Garden Watch 2020.

At Willowbrook we have a wide range of wild bird products including the official RSPB range of birdcare. Follow the following instructions to take part - and have fun!

It’s so easy to take part. An hour with the birds is a wonderful opportunity to sit back, relax and spend time with nature. So, pop the kettle on, put your feet up and start counting!

  1. Watch the birds for one hour
    Choose an hour between 25 and 27 January to watch the birds in your garden or local park.
  2. Count the most birds that land at once
    Only count the birds that land in your garden or park, not those flying over. The same birds may land more than once, so you can avoid double counting by recording the highest number of each bird species you see at any one time – not the total number you count over the hour.
  3. Tell us what you saw
    Every count is important, so don’t worry if you don’t see anything. Observing which birds aren’t around is as important as seeing the ones that are. You can submit your results online at from 25 January until 16 February.

If you’d prefer to send the RSPB your results by post, you can download a submission form from Please make sure you post your findings back to the RSPB by 11 February.
