Is anyone else in the UK sending in records to the BTO's Migration Watch survey.

If not, now is the time to register:

http://www.bto.org/migwatch/index.htm

Even if you haven't seen any summer migrants yet it's not too early to send in your records. They want to hear about sightings of winter visitors such as Redwing, Fieldfare and Brambling as well.

I did it last year, don't the BTO get in touch automatically, as I am doing the Garden Birdwatch, I thought they'd e-mail me when the time came?

The BTO according to reports have started the watch earlier this year as the reports of Spring movements were happening earlier than normal across europe.....

We should get as many uk members as possible to register and take part.

Hi Songbird

Thanks for your email. We (the BTO) do automatically email existing users of Migration Watch. I sent an email out last week but had hundreds of 'bounced-back' emails because people change their email address and don't tell us.

Use this link http://blx1.bto.org/migwatch/ and then click on 'My details' and use the link to update email. That might be why you didn't get an email from us?

If not, then apologies.

Best wishes

Hi Dawn
Well I got your email, mine didn't bounce back! But I expect you realise that the message you have replied to on here was last years? Time flies doesn't it!

Blimey yes. Didn't even look at the date! So much going on at the moment.
