House Martin Survey - help required

Posted April 29th, 2015 at 9:48 pm

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 http://www.bto.org/volunteer-surveys/house-martin-survey  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.'
