The society organises its own surveys and assists with surveys organised by CAWOS (Cheshire and Wirral Ornithological Society) and is also involved in national surveys organised by the BTO (British Trust for Ornithology).
Help on any, or all of, these surveys is always welcome.
A new activity for SECOS, starting in 2018, is a bold attempt to learn more about the birds in our SECOS Recording Area, both in the breeding season and during the winter. It has been made very easy to do with just three visits of up to two hours in each season to record all the birds that you see in a local patch of your choosing.

SECOS Winter and Breeding Bird Survey (Swabbs)
SECOS members Colin Lythgoe and John Thompson have been recording details of seabirds mainly found on the roofs of buildings on the Weston Road Industrial Estate in Crewe.

During the Covid-19 restriction period, most of our sightings will be garden ticks, or from when folk are out taking exercise. It has been decided to ‘extend’ the Winter Garden Bird Survey
from 6 April 2020 into the SECOS Summer Garden Bird Survey.
Anyone wishing to join the survey and living within a 20 mile radius or so of Sandbach should contact Trevor Clowes
The last day for the survey was 3 October 2020 so please send your forms to Trevor as soon as possible
