Hi All,


After discussions between the ACT eBird reviewers and Cornell University, we now have additional protocols for using eBird for the Latham Snipe Survey. This will make the process of collating data a lot more straightforward, and also means you no longer have to email me the eBird record numbers.



I now have an eBird account (user name Snipe Survey) . Once you have completed your survey, simply share it with Snipe Survey. 

After you have done this once, the name will remain in your list of eBird contacts. As mentioned - now there is no requirement to email me your record numbers. I will have direct access to them.


Recording snipe

If you see Snipe, please provide as much information in the comments as you can about the count, habitat, behaviour etc.


Nil returns

If you do not see or hear a Snipe, please record a count of 0 against the species.



Please use established eBird hotspots for the snipe surveys. If there is no hotspot and you are using a personal site, please suggest it as a hotspot.


If you are not using eBird and want to find out more, I am advised that Alastair Smith will be delivering a presentation about the eBird system to the COG meeting on 14 September.


I apologise for changed instructions, but we are learning how best to share information using eBird and we now think we have the protocols correct.


Thanks once again for your participation, and may the weather be more forgiving for our next lot of surveys!
