Emergency Bird Feeding

UPDATE 11th March 2018

A decision was made this week 11 th March 18  to deploy all of our remaining seed and fat balls on 7 local non public Bird Feeding Sites due to the severity of recent weather conditions . This will deplete all our current stock. .

We are looking at novel ways using mp3 recordings and frequency bursts to attempt to survey crudely numbers on the sites to evaluate the impact of of winter feed on the small bird populations . More on members site
