British Birds - June 2019
British Birds June 2019
The June 2019 issue of British Birds is now out.
Wetland restoration by the RSPB – what has it achieved for birds?
During 1990–2015, the RSPB acquired around 8,750 ha of land on which to restore wetland habitat. This restored land now supports more than 10% of the UK breeding populations of Black-necked Grebes, Bitterns, Cranes, Avocets and Bearded Tits. It also supports a high proportion of the Lapwings, Redshanks and Snipes that breed on lowland wet grassland in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The future challenges for wetland restoration are discussed.

If Peacock is a candidate for Category C then the BOU need to seriously consider changing the criteria. Helmeted Guineafowl must be in the same boat, along with Black Swan and Muscovy Duck.
