We completed our first bird count on the rivers in 2017. We will repeat this in 2018 and 2019.
The whole aim of our work is to protect the birds and increase their numbers. This means we have to count them. The count we did in 2017 will be supplemented by similar ones in 2018 and 2019, which together will give us a baseline for future comparisons. We use a standard and nationally accepted process; this ensures we have consistency and get data that are as reliable as we can get in these type of landscapes.
