This report is now available online. Bad news of course, not least that there are 19 million fewer pairs of breeding birds compared with the 1960s. More house sparrows in Wales but fewer elsewhere (my bird feeder tells a different story). Big trouble for woodland birds including now the willow tit as in this story from The Guardian, 'despite widespread uptake of agri-environment schemes and other bespoke conservation initiatives' about which we are now hearing so much more.
But our wonderful mewing buzzards are doing well everywhere except in Wales. And bird trapping in Malta is still going on but it's declining in Cyprus, which will help our migrators.
It's a good read.
