BTO – Focus On Winter Thrushes

This was discussed on The Conference Calls this week. The British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) are requesting extra information on what our Thrushes are doing this winter. Details can be found here and it’s easy to add extra detail such as feeding behaviour, movements etc.

I was moved to discuss that the flailing of hedges is likely to seriously mess up feeding habit.

  1. Nice one John – I had very good chat with Andy Clements and the BTO team last week and they genuinely appreciate what we do on the Conference Calls to promote the work of the BTO. Having fun AND helping birds – cool eh 🙂

    That’s good to hear… it really helps having Nick on board!

  3. Unfortunately the flailing of roadside hedges is a necessary evil. Overgrown hedgerows create a serious road safety hazard particularly on narrow country roads. Sadly a rather boring but factual comment!

    Proper hedging was much more beneficial to wildlife in the long-term but not very cost-effective these days…

    Anyway, it’s not just roadside hedges that get flailed.
