Since 1988, over 22,000 farm woods have been planted in England. The woods are mostly small, between 1 and 5 hectares in size, which will make survey coverage quite quick and straightforward. These farm woods were planted in a wide variety of settings, ranging from complete isolation through to alongside existing established woodland. This survey provides a very interesting natural experiment to assess how well birds have colonised these new woodlands on farmland.

Please note that as the survey period is 15th March to 15th July, it is now too late to sign up for this survey.

The survey organisers are Daria Dadam and Greg Conway via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
