BBS update

The Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) this year has been very successful in numbers of squares covered. I have so far received data from 27 squares; 18 via the BBS-Online system and 9 on paper forms. This equals the record number of squares from 2005. I am still awaiting returns from 5 squares and all the observers of these have told me that they have covered them so I am optimistic that we can beat the record.

This is a great achievement for a relatively small region.

I have also received data from coverage from last year, which brings the total for 2006 to 24 squares covered in the York Region.
