Successful training course

Saturday 7 May the Stanny Environment Group hosted a Suffolk Wildlife Trust WildLearning Day on Breeding Bird Census Techniques. An early start was required and Mervyn Miller, Carl Powell, Mike Pratt and Rodney West took the course participants out onto the farm walking along a route and recording all birds seen and heard – one route was using Common Bird Census (CBC) methodology and a return along the same route was using Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) methods. The weather was sunny and warm and no wind – very kind! Further events during the day included looking at a breeding lapwing methodology (Bolton et al) and the present BTO house Martin 2016 national survey plus a PowerPoint talk by Rodney West.Scan-1houma-004-e-(Doug-Welch)-(RA)_300w
