The John Stott Memorial Birding Day is back!

A Rocha is organizing a third global bird race in honour of our great friend and supporter John Stott’s legacy as theologian, pastor and birdwatcher. Make sure to mark 13 May in your calendars and pull a team together to tackle how you can spot as many bird species in 24 hours as possible.  

You can also participate in the day by entering our photo competition or using our bird-themed spiritual retreat guide. Please visit for more information and join the lively Facebook group by searching for ‘The John Stott Memorial Birding Day’. 

The John Stott Birding Day is planned to coincide with eBird’s ‘Global Big Day’. By adding our checklists to eBird we are contributing to a vast, freely accessible wealth of information, where it can power data-driven approaches to conservation. In 2022 participants in the John Stott Birding Day in 19 countries logged an amazing 1,000 species! Let’s see if we can log even more this year.
