Posted Wed Jan 26 2011: from Cambridge News (UK):
Bird numbers plummet to record low in county
Numbers of farmland and woodland birds across Cambridgeshire have hit an all time low and experts warned the decline is "incredibly worrying". A Defra report highlighted that around half of farmland birds have been lost in England since 1970, reaching their lowest recorded levels. The report also showed that their woodland counterparts have fallen by a quarter. The decline has been linked to decades of habitat change -- a lack of nesting sites and a shortage of food -- but investigations into the exact reasons are to continue.... "The decline is incredibly steep and incredibly worrying. We all need to work together to get these birds out of the red."
