EuroBirdwatch is back for 2022 and BirdLife Malta is getting involved!

This year marks the 30th anniversary of EuroBirdwatch and we have numerous activities to mark such an occasion.

On Sunday 2nd October, we will host a family picnic and a birdwatching session at Buskett. Come along to an excellent birdwatching location, where we will have experts on hand to help you do some birdwatching. We will be situated in a prime birdwatching spot, so we should be able to see plenty of birds, especially birds of prey, on their autumn migration during the evening. We will also have experienced birdwatchers present to provide some of their birdwatching tips, techniques and expertise.

NOTE: Since the birdwatching session at Buskett will take place in a remote area of the woodland, please click on the link below to see the directions towards the birdwatching spot. Please note that you will need to walk across rough terrain to reach the area. We are also providing suggestions where you can park. If you click on the parking area on the PDF it will provide you with google map instructions to arrive on site – you just need to insert your starting point and press GO.

EuroBirdwatch22 events in Malta will start the previous day, on Saturday 1st October, at our Għadira Nature Reserve where we will be hosting live bird ringing sessions and an open day. For details about the first day of events click here.

This annual initiative is organised every year by BirdLife Malta as part of this Europe-wide initiative held by all BirdLife partner organisations during the same weekend in several countries across Europe and Central Asia. Hundreds of local birdwatchers will identify and count passing birds during the great autumn migration when millions of birds make their epic journey southwards to wintering areas in the Mediterranean and Africa. Malta will contribute too by reporting its numbers.
