Beautiful, freshwater habitats that are home to an abundance of wildlife are being devastated by agricultural waste, raw sewage and pollution from abandoned mines, according to a new report . According to an online YouGov poll, 88% of those in England, Wales and Northern Ireland agree freshwater habitats are a “national treasure” and 87% want more to be done to protect them.

It is with heavy hearts that we honour and say good-bye to Tony Wood, former BirdLife Zimbabwe President and Vice-President. Tony suffered a stroke at home late on Saturday afternoon 11th September and passed away on Sunday 12th September 2021. We will all have our own memories of Tony. He was widely known, has been involved with BirdLife Zimbabwe for many years and had many birding friends within the BirdLife Partnership. We will always be thankful to Tony. Tony was President and Vice President of BirdLife Zimbabwe from 2012 to 2018. In the tough times post 2012 when BirdLife Zimbabwe was struggling, Tony supported and participated in all our fundraising efforts and was a pillar of strength as we slowly got back to our feet. Tony was there when we needed him most for which we will always be grateful.

Two species suffer catastrophic embryo mortality in recent heatwaves The post Shiny feathers in the mountains appeared first on British Ornithologists' Union.


Another Griffon Vulture died because of electrocution on a power line near Alburquerque, Badajoz, in Spain, which is, unfortunately, a far too common occurrence. Hundreds of vultures die each year electrocuted in poorly insulated medium-tension electricity pylons across Europe – this is indeed one of the main causes of mortality for these scavenging species. This […]


During the first lockdown in 2020, the British Trust for Ornithology’s (BTO) Garden BirdWatch (GBW) survey saw the number of participants double, from just over 10,000 to over 20,000 garden birdwatchers, with submissions of garden wildlife sightings up by around a third on 2019. So far in 2021 almost 4 million observations have been submitted. BTO Garden BirdWatch takes […]


Godaften folkens Så er jeg tilbage på stationen igen, efter at jeg var hjemme i lille Hvidovre her i weekenden. Sidste gang jeg forlod stationen kunne de tilbageblevne tydeligt mærke udgangseffekten,...

Ørneungen er fløjet, kameraet er slukket og årets dramatiske sæson af ØrneTV er slut. Men hvad har vi egentlig lært?


Today was a red letter day day in the annals of the Oslo Birder. Today I became joint first in the all time Oslo listing and can finally rightfully call myself THE Oslo Birder 😉 Per Christian and I went for another owling session on Sunday evening with hopes again high as ringing sessions further north continue to net good numbers of Tengmalm’s Owls. I have noted that the odd Long-eared and Hawk Owl have also been caught and the first species has especially interested me as it is perhaps the most blaring hole in my Oslo list. Conditions were good in so far as as there was not a breath of wind although a cloudy sky was perhaps not ideal. We heard no migrating birds (e.g Redwings) presumably as a result of the cloud but also did not hear either Pygmy or Tawny Owl which we heard on our previous visit. We did not see or hear any Tengmalm’s either but the night was more than saved by my missing bird – a Long-eared Owl flew over and around us illuminated in Per Christian’s torch. It was a real kick to watch it fly over silently almost bouncing on elastic wings. Earlier in the day Mrs OB and I had taken the dog for a good walk in Maridalen where there were incredibly few birds. Two Wheatear were notable due to the late date and a male Three-toed Woodpecker enjoyable but otherwise it was eerily quiet. There were no pictures of the LEO so I present what it means: 242 species in Oslo and joint first place with frenchman Eric Roualet. One needs to ignore Jack here who has somehow managed to get every species he sees to count twice (perhaps a perk of being both English and French 😀). Interesting though that foreigners top the list male Three-toed Woodpecker Wheatear (steinskvett) #1 and #2 which is an interesting looking bird with a rather extensive amount of black on the face

Proposals for significant new housing and infrastructure development risk damaging impacts on nature and climate if they continue to bypass environmental safeguards. Government plans for rapid growth and development between Oxford and Cambridge, known as the Oxford-Cambridge Arc, risk damaging impacts on nature and climate unless they urgently rethink their approach, according to nature conservation […]
