Yes, I've been participating for about 3 yrs. Results can be submitted on
line now although I haven't tried yet, have you?

I don't know why the RSPB can't use the BTO figures. I am sure they do it
just to get extra donations.

If anybody living in the London area is interested, the London Natural
History Society produces an annual 'London Bird Report' which covers an area
of 20 mile radius from St Paul's cathedral and list all birds that have been
seen that year, together with articles etc. The latest edition is for 1999.
