The British Trust for Ornithology’s (BTO) collection of bird records in its databank hit 100 million this week, making this the most important bird resource in the country. The record-breaking submission was submitted to the BirdTrack survey.

February 2010. The BTO has been collecting information on Britain’s birds since 1933 through a variety of citizen science surveys. Since 2002 an increasing number of these large-scale surveys have been run using on-line systems that allow volunteers to enter their observations and view the results. The BirdTrack survey was set up in 2004 to collect records from individual birdwatchers of all abilities to help monitor the movements and distribution of birds across the whole of Britain and Ireland. The 100 millionth observation submitted was a Coal Tit in South Wales.
