BTO Surrey region
Make your birding count – volunteer and support BTO surveys, schemes and projects!
The local Surrey BTO region runs several surveys across the patch. Since the BTO Surrey region is made up of a number of grid squares its coverage isn't quite the same as the County of Surrey and includes small parts of neighbouring counties.
Read more about the area and surveys we are involved with here.
BTO Surrey aims to:
* Maintain good coverage of surveys in the Surrey region, through recruitment and providing support to volunteers.
* Foster a vibrant community engaged and kept up to date with news and feedback of the results of their collective efforts.
* Create a community integrated into the local bird scene, with links to local bird clubs, similar groups and other neighbouring BTO communities.
