The Garden Nesting Survey (GNS)
View the results of the survey on the Garden Nesting Survey Results Page.
The 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.
Current nest monitoring projects
If you enjoyed taking part in the survey, or are interesting in getting involved with looking for nesting birds in your garden or further afield, consider becoming a Nest Record Scheme or Nesting Neighbours volunteer. Taking part in these BTO projects contributes to our understanding of the breeding behaviour and success of our birds
