Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) & Waterways Breeding Bird Survey (WBBS)
Nature Scotland co-ordinates and conducts bird survey efforts for North Argyll which includes BBS (breeding bird surveys) and WBBS (waterways breeding bird survey).
The BTO/JNCC/RSPB Breeding Bird Survey is the main scheme for monitoring the population changes of the UK’s common breeding birds. It is a national volunteer project aimed at keeping track of changes in the breeding populations of widespread bird species in the UK. Wild bird populations are an important indicator of the health of the countryside, and knowing to what extent bird populations are increasing or decreasing is fundamental to bird conservation.
