Record Highs for RSPB Hope Farm Monitoring 

© Alan Woodgate

Here at RSPB Hope Farm we undertake a summer monitoring programme every year to measure how our bird and butterfly populations change in relation to our wildlife friendly farm management. Bird monitoring begins at the end of March and runs until the first week of July, with between 8 and 12 surveys of the whole farm completed. For each survey, I walk every hedgerow and field boundary on the farm and map the locations of all bird activity (singing, alarm calls, nest building) using Common Bird Census (CBC) methods.
