Current and ongoing surveys are made on the basis of single species or groups of species. The latter may be on birds using a particular habitat or geographical area.
In addition to surveying, there are a number of groups and individuals carrying out ringing projects. For information about ringing activities in Hampshire, please contact the Ringing Liaison Officer (see the Scientific Committee page for address details.)
