BirdTrack Barnsley

In order to obtain as many bird records as possible, it has been suggested that BirdTrack may prove very useful in achieving this goal. In recent years, the submission of records by individual observers has become more infrequent, with the majority of records coming from local site reports. With the increasing popularity of Twitter, blogs etc, sightings are getting lost within the multitude of entries (although I am now keeping track of both on a daily basis).

Without regurgitating the information about BirdTrack, please find the link below which will explain what it is and how to join. However, I would like to stress that any species list from a site should also include noteworthy counts (a list of  just species isn't really useful data).

Again, if anyone has any records for 2014, 2015 and 2016, please email me these to . Many thanks to everyone that has already done so.
