We have been running the Big Bird Bash since 2020. We raise money for The Haven and over the four years £1860.00 has been raised through sponsorship for one of the teams, the number of species recorded or general donations. We will be doing this again over the weekend of May 24th -27th so if you wish to sponsor through any of the above methods, please donate to Henfield Birdwatch at Barclays Bank 20-98-74, Account 53401154 reference BBB or by cheque (payable to Henfield Birdwatch) sent to Val Bentley, Lanacre, Blackgate Lane, Henfield, BN5 9HA.
You can take part in a number of ways, simply report the number of species you see in your garden over the weekend, random sightings as you walk around the parish or even take your own walk. You can report your sightings at sightings@henfieldbirdwatch.co.uk
