Getting back to nature

24.01.2022

At Farnborough Business Park, sustainability and biodiversity are at the heart of everything we do. Therefore, we are delighted that the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch is back for another year. It really is a great way to engage with wildlife and become more interested in your surroundings when you are at work and home.

 

When is it: 

Simply count the birds you see at Farnborough Business Park or in your garden or local park for one hour between 28 and 30 January 2022.

In 2021, more than one million people took part in Big Garden Birdwatch, all coming together to look out for birds. Shockingly, we’ve lost 38 million birds from UK skies in the last 50 years, so it really is vital we do all we can to look after our birdlife.

 

About RSPB

As a conservation charity, the RSPB depends on your support to save nature and to look after places where wildlife can thrive. By taking part in Big Garden Birdwatch, you can also make a difference. Wherever you are, whatever you see, it counts, and helps to track and monitor the numbers of species in each area.  

 

How it works: 

Taking part is as easy as 1,2,3

  1. Watch the birds around you for one hour
  2. Count how many of each species of bird lands on your patch
  3. Go online or fill out the form that was sent in the post to tell them what you saw

 

Biodiversity at Farnborough Business Park:  
Farnborough Business Park benefits from its nearby natural environment and preservation of green space and nature within the parks. A three-year plan is in place to improve flora and fauna diversity, prioritising the plantings of native species and protecting existing wildlife such as hedgehogs and bats.

In 2021, we:

  • Planted 6000 new bulbs.
  • Installed two hedgehog boxes.
  • Installed new wood piles to encourage wildlife.
