Find out how to report found bird rings, wildlife disease, nests and interesting sightings.
Found a bird ring?
Visit the Euring portal to find out how to report a variety of different bird rings and marks, and potentially learn more about the bird that wore them.
Seen an interesting bird?
The best way to report interesting sightings is to participate in BirdTrack. Once you are signed up, it's easy to submit your records, whether casual or complete lists.
Found a nest?
If you've found an occupied nest or nest box that you would like to safely monitor, learn how to make your observations count - take part in the BTO Nest Recording Scheme.
Heard a Cuckoo?
If you've heard a Cuckoo, why not celebrate by supporting our Cuckoo Tracking Project? Follow our birds on their migration, and consider sponsoring one.
Found an injured bird or chick out of the nest?
While BTO and its volunteers monitors birds, we doesn't serve a veterinary role for wildlife.
If you have found a chick alive, but out of the nest you first need to determine whether it is a fledgling or nestling before intervening. Follow RSPCA's helpful guide for more information.
