This is a checklist of the birds of Ardnamurchan generated from the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) most recent census data.
Species are listed taxonomically. The common and scientific names are provided, with the latter linked to the BTO BirdFacts page for that species. This includes a wealth of data including identification tips, population size and trends, breeding survival and biometrics.
The winter and breeding distribution on Ardnamurchan are represented with icons. Each of the individual squares on the 3×2 gridded icon represents one of the six 10 km squares (outlined in faint blue lines) shown in the map below.
Overwintering presence is indicated by an open circle (black on white). Breeding probability – possible, probable, confirmed – is indicated by increasing diameter red symbols on the summer icon.
