Cuckoo and Nightingale Appeal

We are very lucky that so many people recognise the value of the work being undertaken by the BTO and its volunteers. 

Our appeals help to fund important research and projects and highlight the plight of many of our bird species.

BTO Curlew Appeal

Help fund our urgent package of research into the rapid decline of Curlew in the UK.

Cuckoo Tracking Project

 In June 2011, the BTO embarked on a ground-breaking Cuckoo Satellite-Tracking project to determine their stop-over points, migration routes and wintering grounds. The project has been generously supported by Essex & Suffolk Water, Sound Approach, Opticron and Wildsounds. Subsequent years have seen further groups of Cuckoos tagged, and work continues.

Thank you for your support.
