Why are we doing this?
We are trying to find out more about where some of our most familiar birds breed in the Bailiwick.
Resident species such as the House Sparrow and Starling, and migrants such as the Swift,
Swallow and House Martin are in decline.
Apart from a few well known breeding sites, we have little idea as to how many breeding pairs of, e.g. Swift and House Martin, we have on islands.
We need your help to map them.
The types of information we need
The survey is very easy to complete - we are essentially after information on birds nesting on or in any man-made structure, e.g.an industrial complex,
a house, a barn, a fortification or a public building such as an office block or church. Please also include birds nesting in nestboxes - both specially-made structures such as
owl/kestrel boxes mounted on poles or trees as well as 'normal' nest boxes for smaller species.
The results will be displayed on individual
species maps but if you would rather keep your information private (e.g. for sensitive species), there is an option to do so as well.
Please record all species. The species listed on the survey form regularly use buildings to nest in and there is space to add other species as well.
It doesn't matter if you enter a record that someone else has entered as we will sort out the duplicates, but it would be worth checking the maps first. If there is a significant update to be
made (e.g. eggs hatching, chicks fledgling), please fill out another form.
Please complete ONE FORM per building - do not mix and match! Thank you for your time!
