Ahead of the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch (26th to 28th January), Barratt and David Wilson Homes have encouraged Bedfordshire residents to take part in an online quiz and learn more about where their feathered friends live.

Garden birds need a safe place to raise their chicks, and the quiz shows how residents can open up their gardens and give them a home for the season.

The Bird House Quiz is in celebration of the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch, which encourages people to count the birds seen in gardens, from balconies or in local parks for one hour between 26th and 28th January.

It comes as part of the Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ commitment to supporting wildlife on developments and celebrating their national partnership with the RSPB.

Each entrant of the quiz will be able to learn more about a range of birds as they’re asked to match common species to their perfect homes. They will also be given the chance to enter a prize draw and win an RSPB voucher up to the value of £100.

Alison Raine, Sales Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes, said: “Home is where the heart is and that’s true for everyone, no matter the species.

People live in homes of all styles, shapes and sizes depending on their own individual needs, and it’s the same for our feathered friends, so we want to educate people about the birds they can attract into their garden with our online quiz.

“We’re immensely proud of our long-term partnership with the RSPB as we strive to give nature a home.”
