The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds’ “Make Your Nature Count” survey is a wonderful way to enjoy all the wildlife in your garden. The final day for people to monitor the birds, insects and animals in their gardens is today, June 10.
Just like Big Garden Birdwatch, it’s fun and easy to do, making it great for families as well as wildlife enthusiasts. Last year 80,000 people stepped up for nature by taking part in Make Your Nature Count.
The RSPB hopes, in time, that it will build a picture about the wildlife that visits gardens and how important they are for some of our breeding birds and summer visitors. As well as birds, the RSPB also wants to know about some of the other creatures visiting gardens in the summer like squirrels, deer, foxes, hedgehogs and slow worms.
To take part, simply pick an hour today and tell the RSPB about the birds and wildlife you see in your garden by clicking here.
