Survey methods (Help and Guidance)
Thank you for volunteering for the Breeding Bird Survey! The survey is organised via a network of volunteer Regional Organisers (ROs). Your RO will tell you which square to survey, and will be able to help with any queries.
The sections below include all the information you need to survey a BBS square. Your RO will also give you this information as a set of paper instructions.
For full instructions, please see the downloads page.
