Big Farmland Bird Count


Spend just 30 minutes counting birds on your land to find out how birds are doing in the winter and demonstrate the benefits of the work you're doing to provide year round habitat and food for birds.

Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust's Big Farmland Bird Count takes place in February every year.

You can do the short 30 minute count yourself or if the "little brown jobs" are too confusing then why not team up with a more experienced birder near you? 

Over 50 Herefordshire farmers took part last year and we hope to increase the number in 2019. Both the CS Facilitation Groups in Herefordshire - Go Wild in the Curl and Herefordshire Meadows are encouraging their members to take part.
