Get ready for wildlife count

Have your say

RESIDENTS in South Yorkshire are being asked to keep an eye on the wildlife in their gardens as part of an annual survey.

The RSPB wants people to monitor creatures such as birds, toads, bats, hedgehogs and badgers for the Make Your Nature Count campaign from June 4 to 12.

Participants need to spend one hour during survey week recording the numbers of each species seen at any one time.

Last year’s count showed the house sparrow is the most frequent visitor to South Yorkshire’s gardens.

Survey forms will be available online at from June 4, or by calling 0300 456 8340.
