BTO Winter Thrushes Survey

The BTO Winter Thrushes Survey is now underway for the two winters 2012/13 and 2013/14.  It would be great if as many people as possible could get involved.  The beauty of this survey is that you can choose whichever 1km square you wish.  So, if you just wish to use the route of your regular birdwatching walk then you will be able to register the 1km square(s) that apply and submit your sightings.

This is an on-line survey so you will need to register on-line with the BTO (if you have not already done so) in order to submit your records.  Further information on the survey is available from the BTO website.

There are some core 1km squares for which I do require volunteers.  This involves one visit to a specific 1km square, between 27th December 2012 and 10th January 2013 to record the Thrushes seen.  This will be repeated in 2013/14.  The core squares have been listed in order of priority so I'm keen to allocate the following squares first:

SS7592; SS7885; SS5389; SS5490; SS5992; SS7392; SS4591; SN6904; SS8087; SS8391.

Please let me know if you would like to take on one of these core squares.

This a really easy survey to do - and you don't even have to get up early to do it!
