The BTO/JNCC/RSPB Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) is a partnership jointly funded by the BTO, RSPB and JNCC, with fieldwork conducted by volunteers. The BBS now incorporates the Waterways Breeding Bird Survey (WBBS).
The members of the BBS Steering Committee in 2022 were James Pearce-Higgins (Chair), Dawn Balmer, Simon Gillings, Dario Massimino and David Noble from BTO, Simon Wotton and Leah Kelly from RSPB, and Paul Woodcock from JNCC.
We would like to thank all surveyors and Regional Organisers for making the Breeding Bird Survey the success it is today.
The latest bird indicators provide a useful summary of how the fortunes of birds have fared in different landscapes across the UK and England, and Scotland.
Why become a BTO Regional Network volunteer?
In the first of our Regional Network blog miniseries, we speak to Stephen, David and Nick about why they started volunteering and the changes they’ve seen since then.
