We completed our first bird count on the rivers in 2017 and have repeated this almost every year since!
The whole aim of our work is to protect the native wildlife in our catchment area and increase their numbers. This means we have to count them. The first count we did in 2017 has been repeated almost every year when river levels allow. This data will give us a baseline for future comparisons. We use a standard and nationally accepted process which ensures we have consistency and get data that is as reliable as possible for these types of landscapes.
