Post-Atlas work now begins
All fieldwork for Bird Atlas 2007–11 is now complete, although there are a small number of local atlases still underway.
The BTO intends using the data gathered in this ground-breaking project to undertake a wide range of research on patterns and processes of change in bird distribution and abundance in Britain over the last 40 years. The BTO has developed an atlas research strategy which we will take forward through a combination of priority research carried out by our own scientists and collaborative research with selected universities and other organisations.
How the Atlas came to be
The Atlas was a huge undertaking for the BTO, Birdwatch Ireland and SOC.
