Note that the percentage of each species' national range monitored is that of the UK range, not the Scottish range.

The scale of the SRMS, both in terms of geography and the number of fieldworkers involved, makes it difficult to summarise in this manner. Various fieldworkers collect additional data to those listed above, and some undertake more specialist techniques, such as radio-, PIT- and satellite-tagging. Some will also make extensive use of colour-rings and wing-tags.

Note that the number of observers refers to the whole SRMS, not just the species indicated in this version of the inventory.
