Willow Tit survey

Jono Leadley is organising a local survey of Willow Tit distribution and numbers in the York Region/YOC recording area this year. It is hoped that this will provide us with a baseline view of this species that can be used for comparison in the future.

Anyone can help out with this survey, so long as they are able to identify it. See the useful video at http://www.bto.org/about-birds/bird-id/telling-apart-marsh-and-willow-tits

Please email me (using the link on the right) if you would like further details, instructions and recording spreadsheet.
