Common Tern by Jill Pakenham

What a year 2018 was! From the ‘Beast from the East’ to the summer heatwave, Britain’s birds had to contend with extreme weather, and our hard-working volunteers were on hand to tell us just how they fared. It was another successful year for BTO science, and we also took part in many successful events, both in the flesh and virtually, over social media. 2018 was very much the Year of the Owl, with excellent coverage and uptake of our Tawny Owl Calling Survey. Here’s to reaching further ornithological heights in 2019!
