The Big Garden Birdwatch – Sat 27 Jan 2018

Spring flowers and St Mary's Abbey ruins in the York Museum Gardens

Date: Saturday 27 January 2018, 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Venue: York Museum Gardens

The Big Garden Birdwatch is fun, free, really easy, and only takes an hour. If you love birds and want to help them, then this is your chance to do something that really counts. Come along to the York Museum Gardens to meet the RSPB and to take part.

On Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th January, the sightings will be recorded on a board at ‘basecamp’, and clipboards and pencils are provided. We’ll have tick-sheets available for anyone who wants to go off and birdwatch by themselves and Garden Guides will be on hand with tips on where to find different species.

On Saturday 27th there will be guided bird spotting walks at 10.30am, 12.00pm and 1.30pm, each lasting an hour.

Free, no need to book.

This event is part of the Residents’ Festival 2018. York residents can visit York Castle Museum, York Art Gallery and the Yorkshire Museum for FREE on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 January 2018. To claim free entry on either of these dates, please bring a valid YorkCard, Council Tax Bill or a York student card as proof of residency. Under 17s always go free at all of our sites.
