Please visit the Surveys and projects page for details and how to take part in all ongoing and planned surveys including three for 2021 : Breeding Waders, Turtle Doves and Urban Gulls.


And go to BBS-WBBS to find vacant squares in Herts for the ongoing Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) and Waterways Breeding Birds Survey (WBBS).

Why not join in with these incredibly important surveys this spring? They are the main source of population trend information about the UK's widespread breeding birds, an important indicator of the health of the countryside.

Taking part if easy: just visit a local square twice during the breeding season and record all birds you see or hear.
