A Focus On Nature

University Birdwatch Challenge

University Birdwatch Challenge gives University students the chance to participate in a fun, competitive, outdoor activity whilst improving their bird identification skills and contributing to citizen science. Teams will represent their University, inputting records of bird sightings from university owned land into the online BirdTrack recording system. There is only one team per University but there is no limit to the number of people on a team; team members can be groups of individuals, course/module participants, seminar groups, societies or anyone with the slightest interest in birds.
