Winter Thrushes Survey

The latest edition of BTO News (issue 300) contains an article about the Winter Thrushes Survey which will be held over the next two winters to look at numbers, distribution, feeding behaviour and habitat use of passage and wintering thrushes.

There are two parts to the survey: one based on self-selected sites, the other on randomly allocated sites. The methodology is the same for each apart from the timing and the routes. The self-selected sites element starts on 12 September, the random will be late December to mid-January.

This will be an online survey run through the BTO website although RRs will be involved in the publicity and the co-ordination of the random site element. The recording application is currently being developed but you can find further information and register your interest by visiting
