NotesWe thank the many thousands of citizen scientists who contributed bird records to BirdTrack or Bird Atlas 2007–11. We are grateful to supporters of British Trust for Ornithology (BTO)'s BirdTrack Research Appeal and a legacy from Diana Gay Carr for financial support. BirdTrack is operated by the BTO, and supported by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, BirdWatch Ireland, Scottish Ornithologists’ Club, the Welsh Ornithological Society and BirdLife International. Bird Atlas 2007–11 was a joint project between BTO, BirdWatch Ireland and the Scottish Ornithologists' Club.
