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. Participation is very simple and can be a great fun. All you need to do is register your first sightings on-line every year.
We are interested in your first, personal observation of a swallow, a swift, a cuckoo and a stork.
We analyse the results to track the arrival of spring each year and to find the week when most people have seen their first birds. This knowledge will help us to learn more about bird migration in Europe.
Take a look at the results pages to see what we have discovered.
