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:

  • Cuckoo
  • Dunnock
  • House Martin
  • House Sparrow
  • Kestrel
  • Lapwing
  • Linnet
  • Mistle Thrush
  • Reed Bunting
  • Skylark
  • Song Thrush
  • Tree Sparrow
  • Stock Dove
  • Starling
  • Swallow
  • Yellowhammer
  • Snipe
  • 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!

Bird Feeders

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!
