It's time to step up and Make Your Nature Count
with the RSPB's summer wildlife survey
2-10 June 2012
We want to know what slithers, tweets, forages and snuffles in your garden or local park this summer!
Make Your Nature Count, running from 2-10 June 2012, asks people to count the wildlife in their garden over the summer.
Not only are we asking you to record birds, we also want to know about some of the other wildlife visiting your garden, like hedgehogs, deer, squirrels and - for the first time ever - slow-worms.
Gardens and parks are teeming with wildlife at this time of year so it's the perfect chance to take a moment and enjoy it. Why not get your friends and family round, or go to the local park and relax whilst watching the creatures that share your green space?
Nearly 80,000 people stepped up for nature last year and joined in the fun!
The survey helps to build an important snapshot of summer wildlife in gardens across the UK. We can see which species are thriving and which might need our help.
Please encourage your readers, listeners and viewers to step up for nature and get involved this year. They can get all the information they need at: www.rspb.org.uk/naturecount
We can supply you with text, images, sound files and bespoke features to help you create a great story... (images supplied by RSPB)
