BirdWatch Ireland Irish Garden Bird Survey

If you want us to drop you a copy of the survey, let us know by Monday, 6th of December, send us an email with your address and we can arrange for the printing of the Survey.

By taking part you’re helping provide BirdWatch Ireland’s with really important information on how garden and countryside bird populations are faring during the harsh winter months each year.

The survey is open to everyone. Click here to see guidance on how to carry out the survey, and some of the most frequently asked questions about taking part. It’s from the first week of December to the last week of February every winter, which amounts to 13 weeks. It’s not necessary to carry out the survey in every single week, as people are often away from home over Christmas etc., but if you can complete at least 10 of the 13 weeks then you’ll still be providing the charity with a high level of bird data.
