Record Your Sightings
One of the SOC's greatest contributions to Scottish ornithology is the documentation of bird numbers and the maintenance of the Local Recorders' Network.
As a BirdTrack partner, we work with other organisations to promote the practice of keeping bird records and submitting them for scientific research.
Report your bird sightings to the Local Recorder for the area as well as uploading them to BirdTrack
