A survey done by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds shows we have these species of birds!
The survey also says that cattle grazing within the mixed farm environment is highly valuable to a range of birds feeding on the increased invertebrate supply associated with livestock – especially swallow, tree sparrow, lapwing etc.
It is a pity that this is not realised more widely. There will not be any cattle grazing within the farm next year. The dairy herd is being sold this winter. The price we get for the milk we sell is just too low. No cows coming in and out of the field each day in spring and summer. The end.
