The Garden Bird Feeding Survey (GBFS)
The Garden Bird Feeding Survey (GBFS) has charted the use of food supplements by birds in gardens for over 40 years. The network of householders that participate in the survey extends across the UK.
The latest issue of GBFS News is now available, charting the use of feeders by birds during the long winter of 2012-2013. A poor yield of natural seeds and berries in the autumn of 2012, heavy January snows and cold temperatures later in the winter brought unprecedented numbers of birds to GBFS gardens. The insight provided by GBFS participants is particularly helpful as bird foods and feeders continue to develop apace. We are delighted to share with you the fruits of their endeavours.
