Not so grim up north

26 September 2011

Woodland bird numbers in the Northwest have increased by 31% since 1994 according to a new study by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB).


This contrasts with heavy declines in the south, with a drop in numbers of 19% in the South East and 13% in the South West.


The Mersey Forest plays its part

Over the same time period as the study, The Mersey Forest Partnership has planted new woodlands the size of 4,000 football pitches in Merseyside and Cheshire, so we hope to have played a significant part in the success story in the Northwest.


Another positive is that as the many recently planted young woodlands within The Mersey Forest area grow and mature, they will continue to aid our much-loved wildlife for decades to come.
