Record submissions for our website

Please submit your records following  the guidance notes and the guidelines for bird records which includes a detailed species list. Records do not appear on the website until they are approved by a moderator and for space reasons it is not possible to publish every record on the website. These unpublished records are still vital for the production of a comprehensive annual report and are retained in the bird club's database. After a few days the records move to the sightings archive.

Lots of records? please send to us in a batch
or if you prefer via BTO Birdtrack

Where you have a lot of records to submit (e.g. covering a period of months, an annual submission, or breeding summary), please use our spread sheet. Download the 2014 data entry sheet and save it somewhere on your PC, it is pre-loaded with all the species and sites. Please then email to the Herts Bird Recorder. This is the preferred format for submission of a large volume of records and will enable swift transfer of your records to the Club’s main database. This helps to keep the recording and annual report process up to date. Please read these notes on how to use the records entry spread sheet.

The BTO give Herts Bird Club access to Hertfordshire records submitted through Birdtrack.
