Garden birds declining at 'alarming rate'

We know from the many people who take part in Big Garden Birdwatch every year that garden birds are incredibly precious to us. But, several of our familiar and best-loved species are continuing to decline at alarming rates.

We go to great lengths to ensure that special habitats in Wales are given the right levels of designation and legal protection because of their role in supporting threatened wildlife, but what's very clear is that every one of our gardens, the spaces literally on our doorsteps, are really important too and help connect us all to nature on a daily basis.
