Our most popular survey, the Garden Bird Survey (GBS) helps us to keep track of the fortunes of Ireland’s garden birds. It attracts over 1,000 submissions each year. 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 GBS 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.
All you have to do is send in your recordings between December and February. You submit your records through the online form or you can print off a copy of the survey. Full instructions are included.
An activity with no cost, it can be educational for the litte ones,it relaxes the mind and avoids the misery of our current news……
