Somerset and Gloucestershire farmers recruited by RSPB
The national bird charity RSPB has just recruited farmers in Somerset and Gloucestershire for starlings count and to help investigate the birds’ declining in Britain.
According to BBC, since 1979, Starlings have declined by 80%. The birds’ declining goes beyond UK and in the past three decades it is thought 40 million of the birds have disappeared.
Quoted by BBC, Dr Richard Gregory, from the RSPB's bird monitoring section, believes "this loss should be a wake-up call, because we ignore the decline of nature at our own peril."
