The aim of the Big Sit is to record as many species as possible from a chosen 17-feet diameter circle in a 24 hour period, though realistically most sites are up and running between dawn and dusk. From doing the Big Sit we hope to gain valuable data about visible migration and the birds in our area. We are also on a mission to exceed our species totals from previous years and we’ll let you know how we fared when we publish the results in the June newsletter.

We will be operating from a series of public sites across the club area so why not come along and share in the fun?
