Let your imagination fly because there are three im-peck-able prizes to be won including a first prize bundle worth £80!

Create a bird and learn

Birdwatching is a fun learning activity for families. Our neighbourhoods, city parks and countryside woodlands are filled with fascinating feathered friends.

People who study birds are called ornithologists and you can learn all about how to become a citizen scientist ornithologist by reading our blog post on How To Be a Birdwatcher. Here you’ll learn about what equipment you need to watch birds and how to attract birds to your garden by making a tasty super seedy bird cake.

Did you know that each bird species not only looks unique, but also sounds unique? When you visit Nest Friends, you can hear what the most popular British birds sounds like. Why not take a listen and then head out with a pair of our GeoSafari Jr. Kidnoculars Extreme? These special binoculars made for kids have a built-in microphone and audio so they can hear what they see. Print out our free Nature Spotter Bird Activity Sheet and tick off the birds you find.
