    Rare Birds Threatened by Forest Fires

    A major forest fire in Swinley Forest, near Ascot in Berkshire, has conservationists worried about the fate of three rare birds that live there. These rare birds include the Dartford Warbler, the Woodlark and the Nightjar. Fires have raged over 200 hectares (two square kilometres), since Monday. A conversation officer for Natural England says the timing of the forest fires has been very inopportune as the birds are in the middle of nesting season. He added that the habitat would take a long time to recover, and that although adult birds should be able to escape the flames, eggs and young chicks will not be so lucky.
