Protocols are standardised ways of collecting data linked to a geometry (points, transects or polygons). The methodology to follow depends on the study's goal (see summary on the table below). A country administrator will grant you access if you meet certain criteria. Not all protocols are available in all countries.

Accessing protocols


Access protocols from

Menu > Take part > All my protocols for an easy access to all functions you are allowed access to.



The easier way to access all functions of a protocol is through the protocol panel. Go to Menu > Take part > All my protocol. It lists all protocols you have access to in this local portal (see image below). Depending on your rights you could also access the protocol panel through the Administration section: Menu > Administration > Protocol administration > Protocol administration. Options vary depending on your rights (administrators have access to more functions).

However, there are other ways that in certain conditions may give access to some of the functions (see following sections).

Entering data


Enter data to a protocol from the protocol panel (see above) or as if submitting records.

To enter data as if submitting records,

1. access the page STEP 1/3 : Approximate choice of a site either from main menu or from Submit button.

Only available if you have already entered data on this protocol and study site.
Select a protocol, and a site (if there is more than one option for this protocol).


Enter data on protocol through choosing from.png

Entering data on a protocol choosing from.

1. Select a protocol from those you already entered data before into.
2. Select a study site from those available to you at the selected protocol.

9. Start entering data


Choosing list.png

Choosing list. Example..



Options may differ from protocol to protocol but can be summarised as:

NEXT: Continue entering data normally.


CHOOSE A LIST TO ENTER DATA: Some protocols make a distinction between a Basic and an Extended list (see image Continue to enter data as an example).


BASIC LIST: Select to load a species list strictly related to the protocol (ie. waterbirds). It will facilitate entering data. See an example of how it may look like in image Example of a basic list compared to an Example of extended list. Which species belong to a basic list is determined by each local portal and may differ from one to another.


EXTENDED LIST: Select to load a species list strictly related to the protocol (ie. waterbirds) along with other related ones (ie. reed-living species). It will facilitate entering data. See an example of how it may look like in image Example of extended list. Species included in a basic list and an extended list are determined by each local portal and may differ from country to country.


If the administrator of the protocol did not prepare any list for this protocol, you will not be given any list of species to enter from; but you will still have to choose a list option in this section.


NO SPECIES / INDIVIDUALS WERE SEEN: Indicate if your survey did not provide any data. You will be taken to directly to end the protocol. Surveys with no species are also important results! It means you followed the established methodology, and therefore your survey is valid, but no birds were present. They can indicate major population changes and are of extreme importance for conservation purposes.


    "My survey did not provide any data"
    Surveys with no species are also important results! Please submit them.
    It means you followed the established methodology but no birds were present. It can be due to methodology, disturbance, pollution or other major population changes and may be of extreme importance for conservation purposes.



Entering observations


Enter observations as if entering a list. See wiki section Web interface > Submitting records > Step 3/3: Transmit my sighting > If accessed from a list> List section if further information is needed.

If your portal provided you with a basic or extended species list, use it to facilitate entering observations.



2023-05-20 example of extended WBC list.png

Example of extended list.

Change site: change site to enter observations at. You will have to re-enter all parameters again.
Previous: return to previous page without saving.



10. Count precision

Choose from the expandable menu count precision. By default, no sign is displayed and the number entered is assumed to be accurate ( = precise number). See correspondence of symbols at Web interface > Codes and symbols.

11. Number of individuals

Type number of individuals.

12. Atlas code

When available, select from the expandable menu the corresponding atlas code.

13. Additional information

Click on the + sign to open the additional information form, and fill as described in wiki section Web interface > Take part: Submitting records > Step 3/3:Transmit my sighting > If accessed from a list (fill a daily form) > Additional information.

14. Other species

If you want to report a species not in the list, enter as usual: type the name of the species, or part of it, in the left hand field, select from the expandable menu on its right and click on add that species to the list to save the record. When in the list, indicate number of individuals, atlas code and additional information as previously described.

Ending the protocol



Ending list on WBC.png

Ending list. Example.



When all species are recorded, indicate

1. I recorded all species of the program if you identified and recorded all species seen or heard that are of interest to the protocol, or
2. I recorded all species (=full observation list) if besides all species of interest to the protocol, you also identified and recorded all other species seen or heard. Note you can only record in this list species identified within the designated study area. Any species recorded outside of the study area should be submitted as an individual record.


Then, you will be taken to set parameters to start a new protocol.
