Description

Provides a historical account of the impact of changes in farming methods on the bird populations of British farmland over the last 250 years. Despite the scale of change in the late 18th and 19th centuries, farmland birds were little affected, with many benefiting from the appearance of extensive new resources. Comparison with modern experience show sharp differences, with changes in grassland management, in herbicide use and harvesting methods leading to a loss of diversity in farmland and consequently steep declines in bird numbers.
