House Martin Survey
This is the fifth summer that the House Martin Survey is being run. Over 1,200 people across the UK have taken part in previous years providing us with a clear picture of how this wonderful summer visitor is doing. House Martins continue to do well in Scotland with 38% of sites being used for the fisrt time, compared with 13% in the Midlands and 16-19% in other regions.
Help us find out what's happening this year by taking part in the 2013 House Martin Survey.
Help solve the mystery of martin migration
We also need your help to solve one of ornithology’s great mysteries, where House Martins go for the winter. Once this tiny bird crosses the Sahara Desert it disappears. In a bid to resolve this mystery, we hope to fit shirt-button sized geolocators to House Martins in the UK that will reveal their winter location.
