You can make a difference to wildlife

Torbay Weekly

The UK’s farmers, gamekeepers and land managers are being urged to get involved in the GWCT Big Farmland Bird Count from 4 – 20 February 2022, and make a crucial difference to wildlife.

The Big Farmland Bird Count is organised by the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) to encourage land managers to support farmland birds and to highlight the hard work already done by many farmers and gamekeepers to help reverse species’ declines. The count also gives a vital national snapshot of the health of the UK’s birdlife.

How to take part in the Big Farmland Bird Count:

1)   Download your count sheet from the BFBC website www.bfbc.org.uk

2)   Count your birds! On a day between 4 and 20 February, spend about 30 minutes recording the species and number of birds seen on one particular area of the farm.

3)   Once you've completed your count, simply submit your results online at www.bfbc.org.uk
