European Breeding Bird Atlas

The European Breeding Bird Atlas is currently on the go. Unfortunately our Bird Atlas finished three years before the European one so the data from that cannot just be moved across. The good news is that it is covered at a 50k resolution, and uses BirdTrack as it's data source. So can I ask all you dedicated BirdTrack users to include breeding evidence in your submissions.

If you visit the BTO website https://www.bto.org/volunteer-surveys/find-gap-european-breeding-bird-atlas-2 it will show you the coverage for your area.

As you delve deeper into your region you can produce a list of species and easily see what's been unrecorded. Take the Lleyn for example

A quick look at the list shows a couple of species that realistically must breed in the area and just need confirming.

So if you need any more background or help contact me at the BTO Cymru office.
