RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch at Cody Dock

Every year Cody Dock supports the RSPB big garden birdwatch by offering our gardens and river front as a location to take part and, by providing resources and materials to help participants learn more about local wildlife. We don’t all have a garden but we can all take part and do our bit, so this year we are going to be supporting the count in a different way. Take part on your daily walk along the Lea or from your local greenspace, garden or balcony!

Cody Dock has created a digital resource pack on our website to help you explore and learn more about Cody Dock and the wildlife that can be found here. We have also provided a digital survey form which will help us collate data and submit our results to the RSPB.
