Record your sightings

Are you out birdwatching regularly? Then make your sightings count by sending them to the BirdLife Cyprus Recorder. Please see below all the ways you can send your sightings to us. 


BirdLife Cyprus uses BirdTrack, a free and convenient way of storing your bird records online. BirdTrack lets you keep up to date with what others are seeing, view the latest trends, and contribute your data to science. Taking part in BirdTrack is easy and fun. You simply provide some information about yourself, the sites where you go birdwatching, when you go birdwatching and most importantly, the birds you identify! BirdTrack allows you to store all of your bird records in a safe, easily accessible and interactive format.

To create an account on BirdTrack please click here, so you can start adding your sightings to the global database. Select the ‘Global data entry’ option on the opening BirdTrack menu to start entering your records and become familiar with the system and explore all the options and possibilities it provides (add photos, tweet, download BirdTrack application on your phone and much more). Already, a large number of Cyprus sites are catalogued in BirdTrack, and it is easy to add new sites if the area you have covered isn’t registered.
