RSPB Homes for Wildlife project

rspb_ladybirdHere’s another home education resource for you! I received an email the other week from the RSPB. You might remember we took part in their annual ‘big garden birdwatch

Over 1/2 million people joined in for this year’s Bird Watch. In 1979, when Bird Watch began, just 30,000 people stepped up to watch birds in their gardens.

When we sent in our results, we signed up for an RSPB website account. It’s now arrived, and you can register too at ‘RSPB Homes for wildlife

The aim of Homes for Wildlife is to inspired people to make a real difference for the wildlife that shares the open space closest to them – their garden.

Homes for wildlife

By taking part in Homes for Wildlife, you can make a real difference to wildlife and birds. The hope of the RSPB is that people across the UK will make their homes and gardens richer in wildlife by following simple wildlife gardening advice.

You can do as much, or as little, as you like. From a few potted plants on a balcony, to putting up a nesting box, to digging a pond and planting trees in a garden.

Free advice

They are hoping we can help some of our best loved birds which are declining in numbers such as the house sparrow, starling and blackbird, as well as the butterflies, dragonflies, frogs and bats.

If you tell the RSPB about your garden, by filling in a short online survey, they will provide you with free tailored wildlife-gardening advice and details of surveys you can take part in.

This is going to tie in beautifully with the bee garden we are planting!
