UK Bird Species Population Changes
Our UK birds have been split into three different categories of conservation importance, as follows:-
Red – Birds placed on the red list are species which:
* Have declined by more than 50% in the last 25 years
Are globally threatened or are not recovering from historical decline
Are placed on the red list of Birds of Conservation Concern
Amber – Species of birds on the amber list:
Have declined by 25 – 50% in the last 25 years
Are recovering / recovered from historical decline
A rare breeder in the UK or, of either European or International importance
Green – Birds on the green list are not considered to be of conservation importance.
Below is a list compiled of some of our songbirds which are on the list. Figures have been taken from the BTO ‘birdtrends’ webpage and are subject to change.
