BTO is particularly active in Northern Ireland: there are many ways that anyone with an interest in birds can get involved. There are surveys and events that enable involvement by everyone, from those with very limited bird knowledge, right through to expert birders.
They need more people to help gather information about Northern Ireland’s birds. The more they know about our bird populations, the better they can inform and influence conservation policy-making in the province, and the planning of conservation action.
They have a dynamic team of BTO volunteers based throughout Northern Ireland, who are always looking for more people to help improve their knowledge.

Each day will start at 09.30 (except 24th March which starts at 10am) and will be finished by 13.30 or 14.00.
If you are interested in attending a training day please let Shane Wolsey BTO NI know on 07831 697371 or [email protected] know as soon as you can.
Everyone is welcome, and you do not have to be a member of BTO to attend.
