About this book

First published by the RSPB in 1998, Bird Monitoring Methods: A Manual of Techniques for Key UK Species is a practical guide to surveying and monitoring techniques for use in the breeding season – in assessing breeding success as well as population levels – and during the winter. It gives instructions for more than 120 UK bird species, mainly those of conservation concern. Methods used in the UK's main national bird monitoring schemes are also outlined with advice on how to participate in them. In addition, Bird Monitoring Methods: A Manual of Techniques for Key UK Species provides advice on the reliability of the methods, sampling, statistics, and species protection. An essential reference for all involved in bird monitoring programmes.
