The Irish Garden Bird Survey
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.
Between December and February each year, we ask members of the public to keep note of the highest number of each bird species visiting their garden every week. Taking part is fun, easy and an ideal way to get to know your garden birds better; it also makes an ideal school project.
The Irish Garden Bird Survey 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.
You can send us your garden bird records online, by email or by post, and we publish the results of the survey each year in the winter edition of Wings – our membership magazine.
