Birds who nest on the ground?

Yes it’s true! – Lovely Theodore knows how we can help some of Britain’s rarest birds

This is especially important at this time when we are being encouraged to spend time outdoors but maintaining distance (2 metres/6 foot) from other people. Check out the previous news article for more info about ‘how to share whilst keeping our distance’.

1. Be aware of where birds may be nesting low or on the ground:  especially heathlands, wetlands & some downs.

2. Keep ourselves and our dogs on the paths in those places.

Even friendly dogs may stop parent birds being able to find a safe nesting place, or scare them away from their nests leaving eggs or chicks exposed to predators and the cold, so look out for signs that tell you there may be birds nesting on the ground and what to do to keep them safe.

For off-lead exercise spring’s a great time to explore your local area & find alternative places to visit!
