Wild Birds in the British Isles
There are 574 varieties of British wild birds in the British Isles according to the British Ornithologists Union (BOU) and with a growing population of Human Beings and around 8000 domestic cats, we need to take good care of our feathered friends.
It is very important that if you are feeding wild birds, that you assess your surroundings and the likely dangers that birds could be exposed to. In essence, it is useful to put yourself in the position of a wild bird and consider how you would feel if you were landing on the bird table, feeder or bird bath that has been placed in your garden. Consider if a cat or other animal could attack the bird, based on your positioning of these feeders and/or tables etc. Enjoy the facts and useful tips.
Urban Birds Study By The University Of Birmingham
Twootz.com is proudly sponsoring the 'Urban Birds Study' conducted by the University of Birmingham, which is looking at how the levels of connected tree cover and built land cover affect the movement patterns of common garden birds such as Dunnock
, Great Tit
, Long-tailed Tit
, Blue Tit
and Coal Tit
. As part of the study, we are carrying out a programme of mist netting which involves the temporary installation of fine nets set between poles to catch birds in flight. Once caught a lightweight, uniquely numbered, metal ring is fitted onto a bird's leg by licensed handlers. These standard British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) rings provide a reliable and harmless method of identifying birds when they are encountered again.
This year birds are also being fitted with small, brightly coloured rings to enable identification by study stie and we are asking your help to record birds seen wearing coloured rings. We will then be able to find out how far these birds move around the country.
So if you see a colour ringed bird in your garden or whilst out and about then please email us (email@example.com
) the following: bird species, ring colour, time, date and sighting location.
