The conservation director of the RSPB has warned that the “alarming” decline of bird species in the UK is continuing.
Martin Harper, commenting on the RSPB’s annual Big Garden Birdwatch survey, said: “We know from the many people who take part in Big Garden Birdwatch every year that garden birds are incredibly precious to us and connect us to nature every day.
“But several of our familiar and best-loved species have been declining at alarming rates over the 34 years that the RSPB has been running the Birdwatch and this year's results show a continuing decline.”
