Big Farmland Bird Count 2017 gets underway #BFBC

The Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) has called on farmers, gamekeepers and landowners to keep an eye out and record any bird species spotted on their land.

 

Choice of location is optional but a ’good view of around two ha (4.9 acres) of the farm would be ideal’.

Spotters are encouraged to take as little as 30 minutes out of their day to help the GWCT highlight the 'good work done' by farmers and gamekeepers in helping to 'reverse the decline in farmland bird numbers'.

 

Last year more than 1,000 farmers spotted 130 different species making the third bird count the most successful since it started in 2014.

 

Findings included 25 Red List threatened species.

The event this year will run from February 3 through to Sunday February 12.
