So far more than 230,000 people across the country have signed up to take part in the charity’s survey on garden birds, which has been going since 1979.
We are launching our new-look bird feeding station, which has been specially redesigned for 2024 following feedback from customers, and now offers greater shelter for small garden birds such as sparrows.
Company owner Rob Barlow said: “Sustainability and care for the environment is at the heart of everything we do at TDP. We want to do all we can to safeguard the natural world and our nature range has been created to help customers look after the wildlife in their outdoor spaces.
“It’s shocking to see how much garden birds have declined over the past few decades and I hope that as many people as possible will sign up to take part in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch this year. We’re launching our nature range offer as a bit of an encouragement. In our garden in Derbyshire, we welcome a good number of blue tits, great tits, robins, blackbirds, chaffinches and wagtails, with the occasional woodpecker, jay, magpie and greenfinch. It’s also lovely to spot buzzards, kestrels, and the odd Red Kite.
My wife Anne and I are passionate about the environment and have participated in several citizen science trips in the Arctic, Antarctica and the UNESCO Baa Atoll Biosphere Reserve in the Indian Ocean. We have been lucky enough to participate in some incredible citizen science trips overseas, taking part in some important surveys monitoring vulnerable wildlife, including counting penguins in Antarctica. But you don’t have to go abroad to take part in citizen science.
The RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch is a great example of a brilliantly organised survey that is right here on our doorstep in Great Britain. While a lot of the news on garden birds in this country has been very concerning, it’s only by conducting proper scientific surveys such as this one that we can get a true picture of what problems we face.
