Garden BirdWatch Drawing Competition Winners
We asked who loved birds and loved drawing, and were amazed by the results! For our Garden BirdWatch summer drawing competition we asked children aged 5-11 to watch and count the birds in their gardens for Garden BirdWatch, and to draw a picture that captured their experience. Garden BirdWatch is a scientific project that monitors birds in gardens, and we are really excited to see so many younger birdwatchers getting involved.
It was hard to pick an overall winner! Congratulations to, Anna, 7, who has won a pair of Opticron Savanna 8x23 compact binoculars. Well done Anna!
We loved looking at all of the drawings sent to us, and have chosen the images below as runners-up, and the artists will receive Gardman wooden Paint Your Own feeders. Some of the pictures are a little small on this page, but full-size versions will be published over on our Twitter account.
Thank you so much for running this competition! My daughter is very excited to have got a prize, especially a bird feeder! I also want to say thank you for the Garden BirdWatch. We signed up to it in lockdown, and one of my other daughters, who is 11, completed it everyday before she started back at school in September (her sister has been helping her!) They have developed a love of birds and nature because of it, so thank you. We're still doing the count, and have really noticed how the birds are changing during the year.
