NRS Results

Preliminary report on the breeding season

Each Autumn, a preliminary report on the latest breeding season is produced using NRS and CES data that have been sent to the BTO by 31 October. Previous preliminary reports are available in the menu to the left.

Latest NRS submission totals

Figures on how many nest records are sent in each year by species and area is a great way to see your contribution to NRS in context and also to identify gaps where we need more data the most. UK totals are here, with priority species highlighted, and totals per county and per UK country are here.

Ringing and NRS phenology figures

This online report uses first egg dates from NRS data together with moult and breeding condition data from Ringing Scheme captures to show, for a selected species, when breeding takes place through the year. 

BirdTrends report

Every year, records sent to the NRS are analysed together with data from previous years to produce new figures showing trends in the timing of breeding and productivity of UK bird populations. These figures are published annually in the online BirdTrends Report.

Scientific publications
