40 Years and Counting - Big Garden Birdwatch 2019

This weekend brings us the 40th year of the Big Garden Birdwatch and we hope you can all get involved and make it the biggest year ever! It only takes an hour of your time and the information is extremely useful for watching and predicting trends in garden birds.

One common question our group members often get asked is about feeding the birds – Group Leader Andy and wife, Jan have asked and answered the most pressing questions related to setting up your own bird café!

Why Feed? “Because it is good for the birds” is part of the answer but “because I enjoy it” is the other part. Watching birds is fun and they brighten up our gardens – especially in a miserable Scottish summer!
