Sparrow Census 2019
House Sparrows are in decline across the United Kingdom with numbers falling by 71% between 1977 and 2008. The reasons why are not yet fully understood but may be many and complex. The Sparrow Census, with your help, aims to gather valuable data to build a bigger, better, clearer picture of just what is happening with our House Sparrows than ever before! I hope that moving forward, the data collected in this census will assist conservationists, scientists, NGO's, Government and every single one of us in protecting, conserving and championing the humble House Sparrow. The 2019 census is open for submissions from all corners of Britain and Ireland until 30th June 2019 and the results will be published in Autumn 2019. It is by no means polished - as this is the first year and I intend to run the census annually, updates and refinements will appear in subsequent issues. The census should take no loner then 10 minutes to complete and is designed in such a way that it doesn't matter whether you have House Sparrows visiting your garden or not - the answers to the question will prove valuable either way! I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for putting on your science hats and taking the time to complete the survey! Gavin Gamble.
