With Atlas fieldwork for the timed counts (TTVs) now complete, efforts can now focus on looking for confirmed breeding evidence over the remainder of the season.

Late nesting species like Yellowhammer, Spotted Flycatcher, Bullfinch and House Martin are still breeding so look out for adults carrying food for young, occupied nests or recently fledged young.

Other species such as House Sparrow may be having their second or third broods.

You can help the Atlas process by:

  • submitting your paper forms to BTO via Wayne Morris by 31 August
  • submitting all your data online by 31 December
  • responding to any queries raised through validation by 31 January

Thanks to everyone for supporting the Atlas in East Glamorgan!
