What depressing news from Haslemere?

How very sad – are our other towns and villages suffering the loss of birds too?

“Since 1970, 12 breeding bird species have been lost from the Haslemere area. A further eight species have declined in abundance since at least 1990 when we first started measuring abundance in atlases.”
Cllr Terry Weldom said:
This is really interesting and useful (and depressing)information. You can look at birds in your area (by postcode), and those disappearing, declining, increasing, and colonising.
Have a cup of tea and lie down after you have clicked on this link – here at the Waverley Web, we did!


Cllr Terry Weldon is a Lib Dem Haslemere Town Councillor first elected in 2019 and recently re-elected for another four years.
