Currently 10km square ST16 (Barry and environs) has a low count for the number of species where breeding has been confirmed for the Bird Atlas.

The square has 96 species recording in the breeding season but only 35 of these have been proved to breed there.  Notable species that have yet to be confirmed are Nuthatch, Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff, Chaffinch and Goldfinch.

Can you help plug the gaps in our knowledge?  If you can, please enter your Roving Records via the Atlas website or request paper forms from:
