Recording Breeeing Status

25 September 2007 | Marek Walford

I've made some changes to the Submit Bird News page to allow you to record breeding status. This is primarily for the new Atlas but will also be of use for the annual reports.

All you have to do is select an option from the drop-down list that best describes what you have seen. Categories further down the list infer a higher level of evidence of breeding. Records must relate to birds in potentially suitable nesting habitat.

This won't be of much use until the spring (although I did see a Great Crested Grebe feeding a stripey chick last week).
