BBS annual reports
The BBS started in 1994, and a report is produced every year containing population changes and other results from the scheme. Annual reports for every year back to 1994 can be viewed and downloaded.
BBS population trends
Bird population trends are published annually, and results from the most recent year are shown here.
Combined results from a number of BTO schemes, including joint CBC/BBS trends, can be found in the BirdTrends Report. Trends published in previous years can be found by downloading the relevant annual report from the BBS publications page.
