Get involved in Scotland
By participating in BTO schemes and surveys you can put your birding skills to good use, helping us to understand how Scotland's bird populations are changing and why.
We have a broad range of participation opportunities - you can get involved in your garden, urban greenspace, at wetland sites or while out exploring Scotland's wilder places.
