NRS Training Courses
Each year we run training courses on how to find and monitor nests while following the NRS code of conduct. Each course is led by an experienced nest finder and includes tutorials on different nest finding techniques and lots of time for supervised practice.
If you are interested in monitoring nests for the Nest Record Scheme, please do join us on a course. If you already have nest finding experience, please note that these courses focus mainly on open-nesting passerines. If you require specific guidance on monitoring nest boxes, colonies, wildfowl, raptors or waders, please contact the nrs [at] bto.org (subject: Nest%20recording%20guidance%20on%20other%20species) (Nest Record Scheme team).
If the events are fully booked please email nrs [at] bto.org and ask to be added to the waiting list.
