Fieldwork for the European Breeding Bird Atlas 2 concludes this summer. EBBA2 will map the distribution and abundance of Europe’s 500+ breeding species across more than 50 countries. Huge progress has been made already, but your records are still needed to fill gaps in coverage.
Some of the countries where gaps exist, including Portugal, Greece and Turkey, are regular destinations for UK birders. Others, such as Albania, Armenia and European Russia, are further off the beaten track.
Information on how, and where, birders can help is given on the EBBA2 website.
