Spring Bingo

Throughout April, we're going to be watching from our windows and gardens to see what wildlife we can see. Whether you like birds or beasties, you can watch out for your local wildlife. Have a go at our Spring Bingo, and tick off the birds and butterflies you see throughout April and May. Once you've finished participating, please fill out the surveys to give us an idea of what kind of wildlife you spot at home.

Do you like to watch the birds flit between trees and hedges in your garden, or sing from rooftops in your street? Then join us to see how many species you can see from your windows and gardens throughout spring. If you're a bit stuck, check out the RSPB's Wildlife Guides for help with species identification. If you can't get enough of bird watching, join in with RSPB's Breakfast Birdwatch to see what birds everybody's seeing at home. Once you've finished participating, even if you haven't got a line, column or full house, please fill out our Spring Bingo Birds Survey to tell us what you saw.

If you want to take your wildlife watching a step further, you can record your sightings on iRecord. It's easy to sign up and get recording. You can also get involved in the South West Scotland Environment Information Centre's Wildlife at Home challenge, which you can read more about here. Ayrshire residents can sign up to the Wildlife at Home activity, but if you are a Renfrewshire resident, you can still participate in the challenge using your usual iRecord account. 

Happy wildlife watching!
