Bird Identification Guides

For those new to counting, we understand that some farmland birds might be difficult to identify. To help you, we have produced several resources to help overcome any obstacles.

  • Bird Profiles – Read now
    Our experts have written a series of profiles for some of the most-seen farmland bird species, giving further details on their habitat, food, nesting, song, and management advice if you would like to encourage them on your land. The profiles also include downloadable information sheets for each species.
  • ID Video – Watch on YouTube
    If you prefer to learn by video, we have produced a short and helpful YouTube video, which shows how to take part in the BFBC and gives some examples of the birds that can be seen on farmland.
