The British Trust for Ornithology BTO has worked with the Environment Agency to develop indicators for freshwater wetlands using survey data for British birds collected during the spring breeding period. This helps us determine trends in the general quality of the freshwater environment, integrating the multiple pressures acting upon it. These indicators may also help us and our partners better target our activities to contribute to an improved environment for wildlife.
