Welcome to BTO Northern Ireland
BTO is particularly active in Northern Ireland: there are many ways that anyone with an interest in birds can get involved. There are surveys and events that enable involvement by everyone, from those with very limited bird knowledge, right through to expert birders
We need more people to help gather information about Northern Ireland's birds. The more we know about our bird populations, the better we can inform and influence conservation policy-making in the province, and the planning of conservation action.
We have a dynamic team of BTO volunteers based throughout Northern Ireland, who are always looking for more people to help improve our knowledge.
Widening BTO's appeal
Andy Clements, BTO's Chief Executive, looks at how BTO can engage new audiences.
Scottish Birdwatchers' Conference
Every year the Scottish Ornithologist's Club arrange a one-day Scottish Birdwatchers’ Conference, organised by a local branch of the SOC, in conjunction with BTO Scotland.
