The BIRDIE project gathers and interprets data about wetlands and waterbirds to provide information useful for decision making. It sources wetland and waterbird data from citizen science databases, which are checked and analysed using statistical models to correct biases. An online dashboard lets users access up-to-date indicators about sites, species, bird distribution, abundance and richness. The information can be used for reporting, management, research and as a resource for birders.
