It has been a very exciting week at our Woodsetts conservation site as our team have been out bird ringing these baby barn owls and kestrels.
Bird-ringing, alongside other surveys and data, helps us to build up a picture of each population and whether they're struggling or thriving.
Data collected over the last few decades indicates a severe population decline of many UK bird species. Understanding which threatened species we need to support and protect, as well as the underlying causes behind their decline, has never been more important.
This data is used during practical conservation work to help create the habitats and circumstances that will help these bird populations recover, and hopefully thrive once again.
