Wild Birds

A survey has recently been carried out by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) to find out what has happened to the house sparrow, where they are located and the numbers present. Information has been emerging and east London comes high up the table with 282 sparrows spotted. This is a far cry from the large flocks that once flew around this area. The largest flock spotted was about 100, the average being 14. Just over a decade ago it was not unusual to see colonies of more than 1000. Although the survey dealt with sparrows there are many species of British wild birds that are under threat including the bullfinch, song thrush, linnet and skylark. Dramatic changes in the countryside and urban areas have seen numbers of birds such as the turtle dove, sparrow and linnet reduced by an alarming rate. Millions of country birds are threatened with food shortages and the loss of their habitats, others have disappeared from our towns and cities.
