BIRDS

Species rich grassland in turn, attracts many species of insects, these are a vital food source for many birds. (See the above flock of Starlings!)  Since much of the local landscape was ploughed in the 70’s, large flocks of birds like Lapwings that patrolled the local skies, have become a sight of the past. Fortunately, some Stewardship Schemes, have been introduced to address habitat loss for farmland birds......These still have some way to go to bring back the Lapwing!
