The Spring Alive project is a simple birdwatching survey. Thanks to children and adults in South Africa we are able to track the spring arrival every year. Participation is very simple and can be a great fun. All you need to do is register your first birds sightings on-line every year.
We are interested in your personal first observations of swallow, swift, cuckoo and 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 migrations between Europe and Africa.
Take a look at the results' pages to see what we discovered.
