The mosslands of the Carbon Landscape remain an important area for red and amber-listed farmland birds. By enlisting the help of volunteer recorders, the Citizen Science Project aims to monitor the abundance and distribution of Priority species including Lapwing, Linnet, Reed Bunting, Skylark, Tree Sparrow, Yellowhammer and Yellow Wagtail, and to investigate how they make use of different agricultural habitats and crop types during the breeding season.

This workshop will help you improve your bird ID skills by focusing on both visual identification and songs, and show you how to carry out breeding surveys of farmland birds across the Carbon Landscape. You will also have the opportunity to sign up for a 1km survey square and put your skills to practical use in support of farmland bird conservation.
