Are your BirdTrack records being passed on to the LNHS?

Passing on your BirdTrack Records for the London Bird Report
The London Bird Report team have for the past few years been given access to BirdTrack records in our recording area. Following a query from one of our contributors, we’ve found that his records weren’t reaching us though. The BirdTrack system seems to have a default setting so that users have to say they want records sent to their local bird club recorder.

So, if you are sending bird records to BirdTrack, please would you log in to BirdTrack and check the option ‘My details & settings’. At the bottom of that page, if it says ‘You have asked us not to forward your records to local bird recorders’ then we won’t be seeing your records. You can’t alter this setting directly. You’ll have to email BirdTrack to ask them to change this. If this is the case, please ask if they could also send all your previous records to us too.
