A short episode to alert you to two events currently on: the Great Backyard Bird Count, and National Nextbox Week.

Due to delays in my episode production, the next episode will be too late to tell you about these two events.

The Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) 18-21 Feb 2022

What started as a way to collect data on birds visiting backyards in North America, is now a global event that provides data helping researchers learn about bird populations.

Anyone can take part -  just watch birds for 15 minutes or more and submit your checklist to the eBird or Merlin mobile apps or the eBird website.

Visit the official website for more information.

And follow along with the event on the eBird GBBC page where you can filter sightings and recent checklists by region on a page tailored to the Great Backyard Bird Count.

National Nestbox Week 14-21 Feb 2022

Organised by the BTO (British Trust for Ornithology) the event encourages people to put up nest boxes to help breeding birds, needed because many natural sites are disappearing.

It’s also a great way to feel connected with nature, when you see birds raising their young nearby.
