About this event

Every January the RSPB encourage a nationwide bird count so we can check the number and diversity of birds in our parks and gardens.

Come and join us at the Horniman for a day celebrating bird life and finding out what species are in our gardens. Help us with our Horniman Garden bird survey, make a bird feeder, make a bird puppet and explore some of our bird taxidermy, Bird expert David Darrell–Lambert from Bird Brain UK will be on hand to lead walks, help identify birds, and answer questions.

We will have some binoculars available to borrow, but if you have some please bring them along.
