The Spring Alive project is a simple birdwatching survey. Thanks to children and adults all around Europe we are able to track the arrival of spring every year. Taking part is very simple and can be great fun. All you need to do is register your first bird sightings on-line every year.
We are interested in your personal first observations of Swallow, Swift, Cuckoo and White Stork.
We analyse the results to track the arrival of spring every year and to find the week when most people have seen their first birds. This knowledge will help us to find out about bird migration patterns across Europe.
Take a look at the results pages to see what we have discovered so far.
