House Martin Survey – help required

In 2015 the BTO are starting a survey of House Martins and our local BTO Regional Rep., Stella Beavan, has explained  ‘We need volunteers who are willing to carry out two or three visits to a 1-km square between late May and mid-July, to look for House Martins and their nests.

The squares for this year are randomly selected and will help to establish a baseline.  It would be really great to have DB members take part in the survey.

Anyone can read about the survey at  and volunteer to take part.  There are also leaflets available to explain to anyone who is concerned why they looking at houses with binoculars!”  Request a leaflet

Next year volunteers will also be able to select their own sites to monitor.’
