BEARDED TIT SEMINAR

-1424319266A65CC79

On Saturday 21 February delegates from all over the country came to Stanny Field Centre to talk about the ecology of the bearded tit. During the morning there was a series of short talks by individuals describing their particular site; Stanny Farm; RSPB Minsmere, RSPB Tayside, Scotland; Farlington Marshes, Portsmouth; North Kent Marshes, National Trust Wicken Fen and Walberswick/Westwood Marshes. This did not include all the areas represented by people at the seminar but it did provide a good cross section

At the end of the morning delegates discussed the feasibility of a new comprehensive survey of the bird’s status in the UK. The afternoon was a series of interactive sessions dealing with; correct management and the bird’s requirements; present and future threats and the direction of further research. The main findings of the day will be written up by Iain Malzer the co-host of the day and a copy will appear on this blog.
