Willing for Willow Tits

In 2018 Glamorgan Bird Club, with a grant from Welsh Ornithological Society, is running a project to help determine the breeding status and distribution of willow tit in east Glamorgan. Knowledge suggests the species is uncommon and patchily distributed in our area and its recent national population decline makes it a Red List species.

Findings of this study will inform potential habitat management work and nest box provision.

Anyone can make a contribution to the project by reporting sightings of this species in our regions.  Club members participating in the survey, can claim travel expenses, recording the date and distance travelled for each survey visit.

More details, including instructions, identification guides and survey forms are available from the Glamorgan Willow Tit Project.
