Hot off the press from our Warden, Dave Aitken, the lowdown on how our tree sparrows have fared this season. Get ready, here come the numbers:
All in all It was a challenging season at times, we missed a few chicks/nesting attempts right at the start due to lockdown and there was rotten weather late spring/early summer which took out a few nests and again at the end of the season. Despite all this our sparrow factory continues to churn out more tree sparrows and the work we do on site to support them is a testament to their success. In addition our winter bird crop project is going to make a huge contribution to winter survival for them as well as so many other farmland birds.
We spend 90% of net income on conservation, public education and advocacy
