    Kinross Bird Atlas

    During fieldwork for BirdAtlas 2007-11, data for the old county of Kinross was gathered from all of its 71 tetrads. It was originally intended to publish the data as a separate atlas, but a problem with the mapping meant that the project had to be re-considered. It is now hoped that the Kinross data might be combined with the Fife atlas data and the resulting combined maps made available on a CD. This is still in hand and no end date is currently available.
