 The ease of recording casual sightings could be an
influencing factor when comparing survey results, particularly when
looking at common or less significant species that may not attract as
much "special attention".

It could also be an influencing factor in the dedication, or otherwise, of potential recorders. I confess, I did not persevere with atlas recoding this time. It was just too onerous, filling out all that paperwork all the time. I regret what some may see as my laziness and I fully understand the desirability of using rigorously designed survey methods, but the fact remains....

On another subject, is there a on-line birder who knows the SA Blythe-Brinkworth area and would like to email me for a chat?
