British Bird Atlas
Fieldwork kicks off for Bird Atlas 2007-11 on 1st November and the BTO hopes that all birders in Britain and Ireland can spare a few hours during the winter and breeding season to take part. The Atlas aims to map the distribution and
relative abundance of birds in the winter and breeding season, so everything you see
could contribute. There are two ways to take part (of equal priority):
- take on a timed count in a tetrad (2x2 km square)
- compile comprehensive species lists of birds in a 10-km square (Roving Records)
If you can help out, please visit http://www.birdatlas.net to find out more, download Roving Record forms, register for Atlas Online and 'request a tetrad'.
