How to do a bird count
Visit one of the bird count stations in the Town Belt. Scan the QR code to link to birdcount.nz and Count page.
Fill in the location and weather details then tap count button to begin timer
Note: the timer starts ticking down as soon as you press count button - be ready to look and listen for birds!
Stand still near the station and record the number of every species of bird you see and hear (try not to count the same bird twice!)
Tip! Tap the bird's name on the form to add it to your count.
Tip! If you're unsure of a bird species, you can list it as 'unspecified'
Count birds for the full five minutes and submit your report even if you don't see any birds
