House Martin Nest Study 2017

With House Martins now being seen regularly in the region this spring, now is the time to start to monitor your nests. The BTO's House Martin Nest Study has been extended to 2017 and is particularly suitable if you have nests on your house, your work or somewhere you visit often. It does not take much effort to monitor a nest or two, just a few minutes a week, but it is very rewarding to see the progress through the season.

Are you one of the many people who miss atlassing? Here's an opportunity to contribute to the second European Breeding Bird Atlas. You can help by recording breeding evidence in your BirdTrack records, recording complete lists which will help to determine abundance and recording lists when on holiday.
