Stoke D'Abernon nightingale surveyors sought
24 Feb 2012
The British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) is inviting people to help survey Stoke D'Abernon for nightingales this spring, as part of a bid to aid the birds' conservation in future years.
People are being invited to help survey Stoke D’Abernon for nightingales in the coming months.
The British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) is conducting a full survey of breeding nightingales across Britain this spring.
The main aim is to map all singing males and compare their numbers and distribution with results from the previous national survey in 1999.
The BTO said that knowing where nightingales are in 2012, and which habitats they are using, will greatly aid their conservation in future years.
Stoke D'Abernon is one of the sites that requires surveyors in Surrey.
Anybody interested in volunteering for the role should call Penny Williams, the county's BTO regional representative, on 01276 857736.
