Welcome to BIRDIE

Release version 1.0.0 is now available - with all 2022 data! BIRDIE is an innovative data pipeline pulling automatically from several datasets, with much statistical analyses and modelling in the background. Please be patient and report errors or ideas for improvement using the Feedback button. Please cite the correct version when you utilise the BIRDIE platform. See the Releases menu for more information on each update. Decision making in the biodiversity sector is only as good as the data that underpins the science. Help us improve on the underlying data by contributing as citizen scientists to the CWAC and SABAP datasets - see links under Resource.
