Join GBW and help garden birds
BTO is a charity that relies on the generosity of passionate birdwatchers like you. Funds raised from GBW mean that we can better understand how to help garden birds and other wildlife.
BTO not only wishes to help our garden birds, but we want to bring people together and support wellbeing. We are therefore now offering GBW for free to encourage people to discover the joy of birdwatching and nature. Participating for free does mean that BTO will lose a significant source of income – so if you are in the position to help with a donation, however large or small, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you for your support.
Joining for free will includes access to our online recording system, and our weekly e-newsletter with information on recording and identifying garden wildlife.
The project is funded by our supporters, who pay an annual subscription of £17. This includes:
- A copy of the acclaimed 220-page 'Garden Birds and Other Wildlife' (RRP £14.99), which will help you identify and learn more about your garden wildlife
- Our magazine Bird Table delivered four times a year
- Access to expert advice from the BTO to help you identify, understand and look after the wildlife in your garden
- Our wekkly e-newsletter, packed with information on recording and identifying garden wildlife, and news from the GBW community.
If you would like to join as a paying GBW supporter and receive the book and magazine, please call the Supporter Team on 01842 750050.
