British Garden Birds is dedicated to helping garden birdwatchers to identify and enjoy the birds that visit their gardens, and to understand the birds' lives and behaviour.

This month... Did you know?
Many of our garden birds, such as House Sparrows and Starlings, are busy building their nests in April. Some others, like Blue Tits and Great Tits, are laying and incubating their eggs,  hopefully timing the hatching of their young with an abundance of caterpillars.  Carrion crows and Magpies are repairing last year's nest. Summer visitors are also returning. Sand Martins are the first hirundines to arrive in Britain, often in mid-March, followed by House Martins and Swallows. Swifts, which aren't actually hirundines, arrive last in late April or early May. All are returning from wintering grounds in southern Europe and Africa to breed in the UK, where there is a relative abundance of insects to feed their young.
Vote now! Things to do...
Vote Now! (Opens in new window)From 2007, the Greenfinch was affected by a disease that almost halved the population. Do you think their numbers are steady, increasing or still decreasing? Vote now! Migration reaches its peak this month with hirundines, warblers, flycatchers and Cuckoos arriving on our shores. Why not join the on-line BTO BirdTrack survey and help scientists understand more about migration.
