- How can we know if a species really is rare or threatened if we don't have an accurate picture of where they are and how their population or range is changing over time?
- Today's common species may be tomorrow's rare species; we won't know its happening and won't be able to help, if we don't know where they are.
- Monitoring species can also help us detect other kinds of change, such as climatic change.
So, lets make a new start in 2011; send your sightings to me, Tammy Stretton, at the Trust (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you regularly record on the same site, you may wish to use an excel spreadsheet for your recording; Tammy can provide just the thing!
Want to know what information to provide? Take a look at our biological recording page.
What if your sightings are not on a Trust reserve, but you want to make them count? BTO's Birdtrack gives you all the online bird recording space you could ever need!
