Grey Heron chicks by Chris and Elspeth Rowe
30 Jun 2015

The Heronries Census counted its first Grey Heron nest way back in 1928; 400,000 nests later it has gone digital. Counts are made at heronries by the BTO’s volunteers and it is one of the simplest surveys to take part in. Until now, most counts have been mailed to BTO on special cards but, from now on volunteers have the option of inputting data direct online.
