London Bird Records is a new citizen science project from the London Natural History Society (LNHS) and the Greenspace Information for Greater London (GIGL) that may appeal to bird-lovers, especially those with a connection to London. For the past several decades, the LNHS has been collecting record cards of bird sightings. Collectively, these record cards document a number of birds that have been spotted within a twenty-mile radius of St Paul's Cathedral over the course of the twentieth century. The LNHS, along with the GIGL, are now looking for volunteers to transcribe these record cards in order to "[fill] gaps in our knowledge about global biodiversity and natural heritage, and possibly identify trends and patterns." Readers interested in participating in this citizen science project may want to start by checking out the frequently asked questions. The classify section contains a helpful tutorial about how to transcribe these record cards. In addition, transcribers can ask questions and share insights with fellow transcribers in the talk section.
