BTO summer surveys

Anyone taking part in the Breeding Bird Survey, the Waterways Breeding Bird Survey, the Dartford Warbler Survey, the Scarce Woodland Bird Survey or any other BTO survey that I've missed, please get your forms to us as soon as possible. For the Breeding Bird Survey, you can input your data directly onto the BTO BBS website, and so far four people have done so this year - I get a message saying that you have input data, so then I can stop chasing you for it.
Pembrokeshire Breeding Bird Atlas

With the season for breeding birds now pretty much at an end (though there were still a few wrens fledging in the last few days) I hope you can all find time soon to get all your records onto recording sheets and sent to Graham Rees as soon as possible. If things have gone to plan, we should end the season with some records for every tetrad in the county.
Even if you haven't recorded anything specifically for the atlas, records of green woodpecker, lesser spotted woodpecker, redstart and spotted flycatcher (among others) will be very much appreciated.
