Smile Project questionnaires - 2 minutes of your time would be much appreciated

Hello, i am carrying out some research for my MSc project and would find it really helpful if you could fill in a questionnaire for me. I am also carrying out surveys with the RSPB so would like to get some responses from people that do not really use RSPB resreves.

Please click on the link below for the questionnaire, let me know if you get any problems.

Thank you very much for your time and help

Just done it Rachel, I assume my prize is in the post?

One point, it says "If you were to become a member of the RSPB", I think you'll find most people who bird watch are. It also doesn't give me the opportunity to say if I use RSPB reserves or not, which I thought was the point. Just because someone is a member of the RSPB doesn't mean they use their reserves a lot (which is my case).

I intended to fill in the questionnaire Rachel but felt restricted with only being able to give one answer to the questions. I birdwatch at home, locally ie: woods, canals, on holiday and generally whenever outdoors but could only give one answer. The continuity of the questions seemed bizarre to me aswell. Sorry.

Good luck with other responses to your questionnaire.

I agree with Little Sparrow, there are only nine questions and I would want to be able to select more than one option for six of the first seven. For most of these it is not even possible for me to choose one 'main'option because several apply equally (I could choose other and state "several of the above" for some questions, but even this option is not always available).

Hi Rachel, I've completed the survey as best I can but I'm not sure I have the same understanding of 'birdwatching' as you do

Good luck with your studies.
