Two weeks to go

Atlas starts on Nov 1. To date 152 of the 399 local tetrads we will cover have observers, so if you dont yet have one go to the atlaswebsite www.birdatlas.net, and choose one, or two, or three.
The tetrad survey is simple; two two-hour walks Nov 1-Feb 29th and two April 1-July 31, counting everything you see and hear and in the summer recording breeding evidence. You input this direct.
At the same time every species recorded in a 10-km square goes towards the total species list for the square. You can put these in on-line yourself, and I will add all I learn of from other sources. BTO Garden birdwatch birds will also count.
This Blog will try to keep everyone informed how things are going, and direct effort where it is needed. The results you input on-line will be summarised on-line, so you will be able to see how we are doing.
