Bird Track Sightings


BT Banner

To Quote the British Trust for Ornithology ( www.bto.org )

‘The idea behind BirdTrack is that if you have been out birdwatching or simply watching the birds in your garden, records of the birds you have seen can be useful data. The scheme is year-round, and ongoing, and anyone with an interest in birds can contribute. Important results produced by BirdTrack include mapping migration (arrivals and departures) timings and monitoring scarce birds. We know very little about the timing of arrival and departure of winter visitors and this is just one area in which BirdTrack will provide useful information. There are also many scarce birds where we would like to know much more about their populations.’ 

Birdtrack is accessible via the BTO website and provides a valuable tool for accessing local bird sightings as well as contributing your own.
