What we're looking for
The Wetland Bird Survey (WeBS) monitors non-breeding waterbirds in the UK, and is a joint scheme of the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO), the RSPB and the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) in association with The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT). The principal aims of the scheme are to identify population sizes, determine trends in numbers and distribution, and to identify important sites for waterbirds across the UK. If you go birdwatching at a wetland, you can help us by counting the birds for WeBS. New sites, however small, are always wanted, and help is also often needed by teams at larger estuaries.
