Notes on Disturbance and Confidentiality

Breeding birds and their nest sites should not be disturbed, although it is very unlikely to find nesting Willow Tits during the survey period. It should be noted here that the RSPB and RBBP believe that playback does not cause undue disturbance and is essential for successful surveying of Willow Tits.

It is not necessary to find a nest to confirm breeding. Data will be stored securely and only used for appropriate conservation purposes.
