The UK’s largest garden-based science project was back again this year from 29th-31st January, marking the 42nd RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch. This experiment sees nature and bird enthusiasts across the UK join the largest birdwatch through participant’s volunteering one hour of their time, tracking birds in their gardens. This project gives a real insight into our wildlife and how our birds are faring across the UK.
We also took part this year at Farnborough Business Park as we were very keen to see how the different bird species are at the park. Our birdwatchers found that there were generally less species and they were all fairly close to the airport and housing.
Here are the birds that were counted:
Black Headed Gull x6
Long Tailed Tit x2
Feral pigeon x2
As part of our ongoing sustainability commitment and biodiversity plans we are installing new bird boxes to increase the wildlife on the park. Hopefully next year we will see these numbers rise. Thank you to MAPP & Nurture for being part of this project.
