Woodcock Survey 2013

The Woodcock Survey 2013 will be run this summer to take stock of population changes since the last one, 10 years ago.

The survey is based on point counts of roding males at dusk in selected core sites and there is also a possibility of being able to cover suitable additional sites. In the York Region, I have a few high priority sites to get covered.

The survey will be run from the website in a similar way to the Winter Thrush Survey and details of methods, with survey forms and guides, can be seen at http://www.bto.org/volunteer-surveys/woodcock-survey. You can also register your interest on the site, which will house the site allocation and data submission system in a few weeks' time.

Contact me to volunteer or find out more.
