Biodiversity bird survey
Several years ago, Biodiversity Action Plans were produced for four species of bird in Leicestershire and Rutland, in an effort to increase their numbers. Each year, the Leicestershire and Rutland Ornithological Society (LROS) carries out surveys for these species, and reports on the findings. You can help by recording when and where you see them. The four species are all well known and easily recognised, but their fortunes have been fluctuating somewhat in recent times.
The first stage in conserving any species is to identify where they occur, and this is where anybody can help. All sightings of barn owl, nightingale and redstart are required, along with all records of breeding sand martins. Download the leaflet below for information on all four species and use the simple survey form to report your sightings. All information will be gratefully received and will go some way to helping us build up a complete picture of their distribution in Leicestershire and Rutland.
