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 mild autumn of 2011, the cold snap in February 2012, through to the mild March that followed. The winter of 2011-12 was the 42nd of the survey, with GBFS participants continuing to make a remarkable contribution to our knowledge about garden bird communities. Such insight is particularly helpful as bird foods and feeders continue to develop apace. We are delighted to share with you the fruits of their endeavours.
