While spending most of our time at home can be frustrating, it also gives us a great opportunity to be #BirdingAtHome.

We want you to take just 10 mins for yourself whenever you can. Get away from the TV and the news, make a cuppa and do a 10 min bird count at home. Share your list of birds using the tag #CuppawiththeBirds.
