Note about breeding evidence - FL

Remember that one of the main aims this breeding season for the Bird Atlas is to get confirmed breeding evidence for as many species as possible.

FF - 'Adult carrying faecal sac or food for young' is very useful

FL - Recently fledged or downy young is also good evidence. But beware when you are using this code, as young birds can move some distance from where they were bred, even several 100km within a couple of weeks. Evidence of some dependency on the adults is a useful indicator.
