In their defence, I said a maximum of 6000 breeding pairs. They actually said 1800 - 6000 pairs.For example : They are not very forthcoming about the number of foxes badgers and Crovids they kill
whilst trying to play God.
for a bird as rare as this I would expect a wide guesstimate rather than a more exact figure.
eg 4000-8000 pairs.
I’m no expert but for this particular bird my guess would be on awful lot lower. More 1000-2000.
I used to live on making prices. 1800-6000 just shows how clueless they actually are. Just embarrassing beyond belief. This as an institution that is in charge of conservation ?In their defence, I said a maximum of 6000 breeding pairs. They actually said 1800 - 6000 pairs.
I know nothing about birds but three pairs of swifts nest in our house. They only arrived today this year, much later than previous years. I wonder why it might be and if it means anything?
