29 Aug 2014

The recently published Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) results reveal wagtail species are in long-term decline in the UK, House Sparrows are thriving in Wales, Linnets are struggling in Northern Ireland and House Martins are up in Scotland but down in England. The BBS results allow us to see the extent at which bird populations are increasing or decreasing, which is fundamental to bird conservation. Thanks to our volunteers we have been able to monitor the population changes for over 100 bird species over 3,600 sites. Read the BBS report
