The Garden Nesting Survey (GNS)
The Garden Nesting Survey is one of a suite of projects carried out in summer 2010 under the BTO Nesting Neighbours banner. We ran the survey in an attempt to find out which birds were nesting in gardens across Britain and Ireland.
This survey has demonstrated the importance of gardens as a nesting habitat for a wide range of different species, and revealed some interesting patterns in species’ nesting habits. An examination of the results has revealed some interesting information.
