Farmland birds – what can we do to turn their fortunes around?


 Mon 10/05/2021
 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The landscape of Cranborne Chase is home to a vast array of birds. In this talk Peter Thompson, former biodiversity advisor for the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust, will look at the reasons why farmland birds are faring so badly at present. Peter will then demonstrate how we can reverse these declines, by working closely with farmers and land managers to create and conserve habitats for the benefit of all. We will also look at how you can get involved and how you can contribute to bringing these birds back.

Peter Thompson is a trained agronomist, but has worked in conservation for over 30 years. He specializes in farmland wildlife and was instrumental in setting up “Farmer Clusters”. This is the concept where farmers join forces to work together on a landscape scale to improve the conservation of soils, water and wildlife. Peter publishes his own ‘Fresh Air Scribblings’ blog and is captivated by our shared natural history. He is fascinated by anything and everything out there and enjoys delving into all aspects of land management, by following the key issues effecting farmers, foresters, keepers and conservationists and how the decisions they make impacts on our amazing wildlife.
