Survey Details - Timed Tetrad Visits
Timed Tetrad Visits
The Timed Tetrad Visits (TTVs) method gathered records from tetrads (2 x 2-km squares) and were used to generate information on relative abundance of a species within a 10-km square.
The purpose of the survey was to map the distribution of all bird species, generate information on patterns of relative abundance, quantify distribution changes, inform conservation priorities, and engage a new generation of recorders.
The survey covered both Britain and Ireland, but only the Republic of Ireland subset of data are displayed.
Four winters and four summers from November 2007 to July 2011.
Hiqh quality. All data underwent rigourous data verification and validation.
Further information some of the key findings of the survey are presented on the BirdWatch Ireland website http://www.birdwatchireland.ie/OurWork/ResearchSurveys/Atlas/tabid/487/Default.aspx
