Following yesterday’s publication of the latest figures on some UK bird populations the RSPB has published a blog. Here’s a quote:
As you would expect, these indicators confirm the dire warnings about Britain’s nature reported in the State of Nature report published on 3rd October this year.https://community.rspb.org.uk/ourwork/b/biodiversity/posts/the-latest-uk-wild-bird-indicators
The small decline in the combined index disguises substantial changes in specific groupings of birds. Farmland birds, breeding water and wetland birds, seabirds, and wintering waterbirds, have all shown significant declines over the latest assessment period.
