Your records are more useful with a grid reference and breeding status information so please supply an accurate grid reference (either enter one in the 'Grid reference' field or click 'Get grid ref.' to use the map) and use the dropdown to indicate breeding status with your record. Where relevant, please note if a single flock or number of small flocks in the comments box.
