This year we're celebrating 20 years of Garden BirdWatch and we'd like to thank our dedicated supporters - without them there wouldn't be a survey. In the last 20 years GBW volunteers have contributed an astonishing 7.3 million hours of their time submitting just under 100 million observations. From this data, an average of one scientific paper has been produced per year including several investigating the decline of the UK's House Sparrow population, which was first discovered through the BTO's garden-based data.
