Scheme To Help Britain's Depleted Birdlife

Local community and landowners are backing the scheme, with many becoming actively involved.

By Ian Hinze

A partnership of the Wiltshire Ornithological Society, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) and the National Trust have set up emergency feeding stations and nest-boxes in a scheme launched in Avebury, Wiltshire, Britain. Local community and landowners are backing the scheme, with many becoming actively involved. One species that may benefit is the tree sparrow (Passer montanus) whose numbers have decreased by a staggering 90 percent.
