Heathland birds on Greenham Common

Heathland birds on Greenham Common: monitoring and survey work over the last three years by BBOWT on Greenham Common, part-supported by a grant from the BOC’s Conservation Fund, has shown that despite two hard winters, the numbers of breeding Dartford Warblers and Stonechats have remained steady. The same was true of most of the ground-nesting species monitored: Ringed and Little Ringed Plover, Lapwing, Redshank and Woodlark, though there is a suggestion that Skylark numbers fell. Adrian Mitchell’s excellent report can be downloaded from here.
