Britain’s declining farmland birds –
– how best to help them?
an Illustrated talk presented by
Chairman of Oxford Ornithological Society
‘The populations of many groups of animals and plants have decreased over the last 50 years, but few declines have been as severe and as well documented as those of our farmland birds. There is little doubt that the intensification of farming has been the primary cause, and current measures to reverse the declines have so far met with little success. I’ll try to review and give examples of some very different conservation approaches that are now being tried.’
