Monitoring nests for the Nest Record Scheme (NRS) is easy to do, with little prior experience required.  This talk will cover what the scheme is about, how to record the information needed, while prioritising the birds themselves.

Lee Barber works for the BTO, coordinating the NRS and several national ringing schemes such as the Constant Effort Site Scheme, Re-trapping Adults for Survival and the Winter Ringing Project. He trains trainee bird ringers to ring birds and monitor their nests safely, while collecting the best information they can.
