BirdWatch Ireland – Irish Garden Bird Survey

BirdWatch Ireland – Irish Garden Bird Survey Launch on Monday, 27th November, Bird Ringing Demonstration 18th November & Printable Poster Featuring Our Frequent Garden Bird Visitors!

The Irish Garden Bird Survey is BirdWatch Ireland’s most popular citizen science survey, with around two thousand gardens taking part each year. The survey starts on the week beginning Monday 27th November 2023 and it’s open to everyone to take part. Between December and February each year, they ask members of the public to keep note of the highest number of each bird species visiting their garden every week. Why do we count garden birds? As the Irish countryside changes, gardens are becoming increasingly important havens for many species, and it is vital for us to know how their populations are faring. The Irish Garden Bird Survey does this not only by giving us a good idea of how our garden birds themselves are doing, but also an indication of how the environment is faring in general.
