Not Too Late to Contribute to Roosting Survey

The BTO’s Roosting Survey has been collecting fascinating records all winter and will draw to a close at the end of February.

Taking part is easy and great fun: participants choose one evening to see if, and how many, birds use a nest box, roosting pouch, or other cavity in their garden for a kip. Observations can be made using a nest box camera, by eye at dusk or dawn, or by counting bird droppings in a nest box on the afternoon before and the morning after the chosen evening. With dusk still descending quite early, the Roosting Survey can be fun for the whole family.
