RSPB Volunteer & Farmer Alliance 2003
We took part in the RSPB survey in August 2003. The survey results found we had the following birds on the farm:
- House Martin
- House Sparrow
- Mistle Thrush
- Reed Bunting
- Song Thrush
- Tree Sparrow
- Stock Dove
- Yellow Wagtail
Quite a lot of the birds listed above are on the Red & Amber RSPB list, this means they are species of high or medium conservation concern. We have also seen a number of Kingfishers, Woodpeckers and even a Buzzard!
We have also sited bird feeders for tree sparrows in locations around the farm. Since doing this, we have seen the tree sparrow numbers increase year on year!
