National and regional trends

Trend production is currently limited by the spatial resolution of some records, lack of geographic coverage and survey effort information and the fact that much information is only provided to the SRMS is summary format.  A priority for the SRMS is to work with SRMS contributors to (i) obtain outstanding grid references, (ii) obtain information on study area boundaries and coverage, (iii) try to obtain higher resolution data and (iv) assess representatives of coverage through comparison with Birds Atlas 2007-11 data with the aim of producing both national and regional trends in the future.
