What is Big Garden Birdwatch?
The RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch is the world’s largest bird survey. Thanks to this event the RSPB now has 40 years of data which helped increase their understanding of the challenges faced by wildlife.
Taking part in this event not only helps with collecting data about our bird population but it raises awareness about the importance of making our gardens an attractive place for birds. If you want to take part in observing birds sign up here.
Why are Birds so Important?
- According to Birdlife International birds are extremely important to the ecosystem. They eat 400-500 million tons of insects a year and due to that they have become a natural pest control practice.
- Birds also take a huge part in pollinating plants. Hummingbirds and honeyeaters make a big contribution to that, especially in high altitudes or hot climates.
- Birds have helped to shape the plant life we see around us by spreading seeds. When birds travel they can spread the seeds they have taken with them across the sea to new lands.
What we are doing to help
To mark the Big Garden Birdwatch Weekend 100% of the profits made by Wire Fence on the 31st of January will be donated to a charity that supports the welfare of birds.
