New Forest Winter Bird Survey

This winter survey was originally aimed at surveying Great Grey Shrikes. However, it has evolved into coordinated, monthly searches between October and March for Great Grey Shrike and other rare, and not so rare species in the New Forest.

Additional observers are needed to cover some areas of the Forest. If you think you can help, please contact Jane Calderin (
