BirdTrack is an online facility for observers to store and manage their own personal bird records. By pooling data from recorders across the Britain and Ireland, patterns in bird migration movements and distributions are revealed, supporting species conservation at local, regional, national and international scales.
The service continues to develop and its now possible to explore all your records, including any you submitted directly to Bird Atlas 2007-11, via BirdTrack.
The default filter in the Explore My Records tool selects all your BirdTrack and Atlas records, or you can use the Project filter (highlighted by the red arrow, right) to single out your records from one of the two projects. Your records are summarised in a table; from here you can navigate to various graphs and maps, or download the records you’ve chosen.
If you are using BirdTrack already then you may find these new features a great way of managing and reviewing your own personal data. If you are not a BirdTrack user yet, then there’s never been a better time to get started.
