Shropshire Rookeries resurvey 2020
This is the second of the two-year resurvey of Shropshire’s rookeries, following the previous surveys of 1975/76 and 2008.
A group of volunteers has been allocated with complete lists of known sites to check on this year, shared among 10km x 10km squares (hectads). Concurrently there is some surveying of 30 randomly selected 2km x 2km squares (tetrads) – from the 400 in Shropshire believed to be without rookeries – are they really without?
Casual observers of rookeries are invited to submit them to the scheme – there are certainly more to be discovered and reported for the first time. If you do submit a rookery – and my thanks in advance – please send the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org
You can use the Rookery Report form below.
For the use of the recorders during survey work the following PDFs are provided to search, download and/or print out.
Thank you for whatever help you contribute to the scheme this year.
The results will be published in the Shropshire Bird Report 2020 and/or 2021.
