Wild bird populations in the UK, 1970 to 2010

Defra's National Statistics Release (Wild bird populations in the UK, 1970 to 2010) can now be viewed online as a pdf on the BTO's website http://www.bto.org/sites/default/files/u38/downloads/home-news/2011-11/Wild-bird-populations-in-the-UK-1970-2010-National-Statistics-Release.pdf


Key BTO monitoring schemes are the basis of the latest wildbird indicators, which show a further decline in farmland birds to their lowest ever level. Woodland birds, water and wetland birds and seabirds have all shown an increase over the last year whereas the wintering waterbirds show a slight decrease in England, but a slight increase in the UK.
