BirdGuides and BTO have been working closely together since early 2010. One important outcome of this exciting collaboration has been the sharing of the BirdGuides archive of bird records with the BTO database via BirdTrack, making these data available for conservation and research programmes.
Thanks to the combined efforts of our database managers and programmers we've recently uploaded a massive 998,280 records from 15,139 sites across Britain and Ireland, including many supplementary records of commoner species. More information
