BirdTrack is an exciting project that looks at migration movements and distributions of birds throughout Britain and Ireland. BirdTrack provides facilities for observers to store and manage their own personal records as well as using these to support species conservation at local, regional, national and international scales.
How to get involved
Taking part in BirdTrack is easy and fun. You simply provide some information about yourself, the sites where you go bird watching, when you go bird watching and most importantly, the birds you identify! BirdTrack uses the proportion of complete lists that include each species to measure the progress of migration and to map the distribution of particular species. At the same time, BirdTrack allows you to store all of your bird records in a safe, easily accessible and interactive format.
To participate in BirdTrack you need to do the following: 1) Read the instructions on this web site (or download the instructions for printing or reading offline if you prefer). 2) Choose at least one site where you will collect records (more can be added later). 3) Go bird watching and note all the species that you see. 4) Go to the BirdTrack web site and register as a recorder. If you took part in Migration Watch or any other online survey organised by the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) then please use your existing username and password. 5) Enter the location of your chosen site(s) or select from the drop-down lists.6)Enter the date and time of your visit and the site that you visited.
