Why take part?
By collecting data about any curlews, swallows or red grouse you see while out and about in moorland/upland areas you can help us to find out if:
- the distribution of these species is changing over time
- the number of sightings of these birds is changing
- the timing of events is changing in response to climate change
The species chosen as potential indicators of climate change are shown on the right.
We have chosen these species because they are fairly simple to identify. For more help with bird identification, you can use RSPB's website
