A Global Disgrace

The posts on this blog detail our own small successes with catching birds for scientific research purposes or in improving the fortunes of breeding birds through the provision of nest boxes etc. Unfortunately, most of the migrant birds that visit here in the summer or winter have to face major dangers on their migrations which make conservation efforts in this country pale into insignificance. The following link is very hard reading and could make you wonder why bother? It is more important now than ever that we all strive as hard as possible to understand as much as we can about the migration routes and population drivers of all our migrant birds because when they aren't here someone else is usually trying to kill them and they are getting much better at it!
