When surveying birds, you may want to make a record of birds using a specific site (wetland, woodland or heath, for example). The reasons for this will vary but could include potential development where it will be necessary to minimise impact on wildlife, setting up a conservation zone when the most species-rich areas would be favoured, or simple curiosity!

Whatever the reason, the principles of surveying will be much the same as the surveying from breeding birds; however, the survey will need to be carried out over a protracted period - not just the breeding season - to take account of such things as winter bird roosts and important feeding areas.
